Last week we got our first look at the digital image samples created from the South Middlesex Microfilm. These records span the years 1628-1855 (the opening of the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds) and are very historical in nature. A company named PaperTrac did the test work. Six rolls of microfilm were converted to electronic images, 4 rolls of Record Books and two rolls of Indexes. The images from these six rolls filled fourteen CDs. On Friday I checked all fourteen rolls. Overall, the images were excellent…They will surely be a great resource. Even while quickly scanning the CDs I found the records intriguing. I saw a number of references to “Indian” transactions and to Wamiset, a name often used to refer to old Tewksbury and parts of old Dracut. These records include the names of local family such as the “Coburns in Dracut”; the “Trulls and the Kittredges in Tewksbury”; the “Bridges in Chelmsford” etc. I am hoping these records will be available for public use in the next two months.
