Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 287: 1704 Marriage Record of Michael Metcalf and Lydia White in Mendon, Mass.

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the  1704 marriage record of Michael Metcalf and Lydia White in the Mendon, Massachusetts town record book:

The snippet for the marriage (on the right-hand page of the image above):

The transcription of this record:

Micall Medcalf and Ledia White married the 21 of March 1704 

The source citation for this record is:

Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, digital images, ( : accessed 4 November 2015), Mendon, "Town Records and Earmarks, with Births, Marriages and Deaths," page 69 (image 42 of 106), Micall Medcalf and Ledia White marriage entry, 1704; citing original data from Massachusetts town and city clerk records in Jay and Delene Holbrook, Massachusetts Vital and Town Records (Provo, Utah : Holbrook Research Institute), Microfiche collection.

The record before this record was dated 14 July 1704, and the record after this record was dated 13 May 1705.  I have entered the date of this marriage as 21 March 1704/5 in my RootsMagic database. 

Michael Metcalf (1680-1761) and Lydia White (1686-????) are my 7th great-grandparents on my mother's side.  I am descended through their son Michael Metcalf (1706-1771) who married Melatiah Hamant (1704-1751) in 1728.
