Compiled by William Edgar Wentworth


During the forty year period 1790-1829 Dover's first newspaper published some 2,000 issues, which contain the births, marriages, and deaths of more than 7,500 people. Originally called the Political and Sentimental Repository but sporting many other names in later years, the paper served an area much wider than simply the Dover vicinity; hence within its pages will be found vital records from all over New England.


Note: This is a paperback reprint, based on a scan of the original hardcover edition.
