Verbatim extracts of CARPENTER entries from LDS-microfilmed vital records of Norfolk, Norfolk, Massachusetts.

Surnames Appearing in the Documents



There were only three instances of the name CARPENTER, all births. One baby had parents who were born in England; the other two (my relatives) are here. I believe the "S" and "L" conditions are "single" (i.e., not multiple births) and "live" -- maybe "legitimate."
