Historical Boston, then only the land of a peninsula, was a faction of the land mass it is today after massive land-fill projects of the mid- to late-19th century (the rubble from the Great Boston Fire of 1872 help fill in the waterfront) and the annexing of six towns from two counties (as listed above). Boston was first settled by passengers of the Winthrop Fleet of 1630 who first lodged in [[Charlestown, Massachusetts|Charlestown]]. These first settlers were Puritans, the religious group wanting to change the Church of England from working inside the church. Called the "City on the Hill" by Gov. John Winthrop, the "hub" as we now call it became the center of trade, education, government, wealth, and power. It was the capital of the [[Massachusetts Bay Colony|Massachusetts Bay Colony]], then the Royal colony of Massachusetts, and finally the [[Massachusetts|Commonwealth of Massachusetts]].

Shortly after its settlement, Boston had become a major settlement. It was the largest town in British North America for the first hundred years. Because of that, the town and later city became a draw for immigrants from around the world. Though the first two hundred years saw mostly English arrivals, Scots, Irish, and French were found here, too. It was after 1820 that immigrants from other European countries started arriving in large numbers. The gate was opened by the Irish fleeing the potato famine in 1847. The next wave included more Irish (their dominance starting in the early 20th century is a testament to their number), but also Germans, Italians, and Syrians. The end of the century saw French Canadians, Russian and Polish Jews, and Swedes arriving. The 21st century brought African Americans from the South, Southeast Asian immigrants (especially Chinese and Vietnamese), Muslims, and Puerto Ricans. Many other ethnicities can be found in pockets all over Boston, and walking in downtown one will likely here many languages being spoken.

=== Vital Records  ===
  
To understand the issues with the vital records for Boston, we need to understand its history. Massachusetts Bay enacted laws early on for the recording of vital events. The town of Boston dutifully recorded these events. From a study by Lemuel Shattuck using the baptismal records, he determined that the practice of civil recording of '''births''' saw a slow and steady decline since 1725 when the reported rate of was 3.3% (religious baptisms were near 5%) and down to 2.0% by 1845 (i.e. less than half of what should be expected). Turning to '''marriages''', Shattuck found that the rate of marriages was relatively unchanged all the way up to 1845. He observed two gaps that should be noted. From '''1663 to 1689''', not one marriage was recorded in the civil records, and from '''1751 to 1761''' only a few marriages were found. '''Deaths''' were well recorded in the early years, but like the marriages, none appear from '''1663 to 1689'''. A separate volume was used after this period and seem to be representative until 1719. But, from '''1719 to 1810''', few deaths were recorded. In 1810, recording was done by the Superintendent of Burials so then appear complete from then forward. Shattuck found that from 1704 to 1774, sextons made weekly returns to the newspapers for the number who died each week. In this period as the town grew, the annual average death toll rose from 334 to 521, so many thousands of deaths were not recorded.

=== City Directories and Almanacs  ===
  
 
Boston '''city directories''' are one of the most complete record of the city's adult male population, business women, and later the widows of the men previously listed. Boston was the third place to start publishing directories (after New York and Philadelphia) in 1789. They were published annually (for the most part) after 1825. The directory evolved from a simple entry (ex. Herring Ebenezer, mason and sexton, Lynde-street) to one of name, occupation and location, residence (boarding or house), and would list you if you worked in the city but lived elsewhere (then it would name the town of residence). Added features were usually a map (often not digitized and missing), lists of a few trades (such as lawyer, physician, etc.), a few civic items (fire companies, justices, etc.), and business advertisements. More categories appeared over time. By the later 1800s, when someone was being dropped because they died, their death date would be given, or moved, their new town of residence was given. By 1930, there was a very helpful reverse directory added (arranged by street). This resource ceased publication in 1981. The years published are:

The town of Boston was divided into companies, or districts, to help keep the order, fighting fires, etc. The concept of the Ward was first codified in '''1735'''. The Overseers of the Poor were having difficulty covering the whole town and proposed to divide the town into twelve wards. The freemen agreed and added that these wards would be the districts for "military considerations," too. The division was given to the Overseers to create and the resulting report for such divisions was accepted by the freeman with the caveat that these boundaries would stay in force until the town decided to change them.[See [http://archive.org/details/reportofrecordco12bost ''A Report of the Record Commissioners of the City of Boston Containing the Boston Records from 1729 to 1742''] (Boston, 1885) [''i.e. v. 12''], 127, 131-133.] The next change in the ward boundaries came in '''1805'''. [See Lemuel Shattuck, [http://archive.org/details/60421860R.nlm.nih.gov ''Report to the Committee of the City Council Appointed to Obtain the Census of Boston for the Year 1845''] (Boston, 1846), Ap. 4-10, wrongly dating the first division as 1746.]<br><br>When Boston incorporated as a city in 1822.

The following is a list of churches established in Boston, East Boston, and South Boston by date founded. The earliest list of churches found was from Thomas Prince, ''The Vade Mecum for America: Or a Companion for Traders and Travellers'' (Boston, 1732), page 215, with "A List of the Houses of Publick Worship in Boston, with the Streets where they Stand, and the Times of the Foundation of the several Churches." There were fourteen listed then and by all accounts, there nothing established that were closed by then. The next authority used was John Hayward, ''A Gazetteer of Massachusetts'' (Boston, 1847), pp. 70-102, and Carroll D. Wright, ''Report of the Custody and Condition of the Public Records of Parishes, Towns, and Counties'' (Boston 1889). For information specific to Congregational churches, Harold Field Worthley, ''An Inventory of the Records of the Particular (Congregational) Churches of Massachusetts Gathered 1620-1805'' (Cambridge, Mass., 1970) was consulted.<br>

The transcribers copied all baptisms, marriages, deaths, admissions, and dismissals from all Boston churches established before 1800 where records were found and include the first three parishes of Roxbury. Some transcriptions go beyond 1800. The only church not giving permission for their records to be included was the Cathedral of the Holy Cross (the oldest Catholic Church in New England).
