The list of Princeton Births, Marriages and Deaths comprised in this volume has been prepared under the direction of Francis E. Blake, Esq., of Boston, to whom the Publisher is indebted for much assistance and many valuable suggestions. The materials have been several times revised and compared with original authorities. Some additions to the names and dates found in the Town Books, compiled from church records, burial inscription, and from various other public and private sources, are incorporated with the official entries, these being indicated in each instance by proper reference.
All of the records are condensed in print as much as is consistent with intelligibility, accuracy, and completeness of information. Differences in duplicates, and explanatory or other matter which seemed necessary or desirable, appear in brackets.
Marriages and intentions of marriage are printed under the names of both parties, but the full information concerning each person is given only under his or her name. An asterisk after a marriage indicates that the intention was not found recorded, and in many cases this is accounted for by the fact that neither party belonged to Princeton, and consequently publishment was made elsewhere.
When places other than Princeton and Massachusetts are named in the original records, they are given in the printed copy.
