From the introduction to the book:
“The Town of Truro, Barnstable County, Massachusetts, lies between Provincetown, in whose harbor "The Mayflower Compact" was signed, and the present town of Wellfleet, which was a part of the town of Eastham until 1763.
Truro was incorporated 27 July, 1709 (New Style), and in 1714 the bounds between that town and Provincetown were established. In 1813, in 1829 and again in 1836 parts of Truro were annexed to Provincetown.
The Vital Records of the Town of Truro, Massachusetts, to the end of the year 1849, are found in seven different volumes of the original town records. The "Register" is the large folio for recording births, marriages and deaths which was issued to all cities and towns by the state, in 1844.
The following pages contain a literal copy of every record of a Birth, Intention (or Publishment) of Marriage, Marriage and Death, to the end of the year 1849, found in these volumes.”
