Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1678/9 Birth Record of Nathaniel Guild of Dedham, Mass.

It's Treasure Chest Tuesday - a chance 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 1678/9 birth record of Nathaniel Guild in the Dedham, Massachusetts town record book:
The Nathaniel Guild birth record is the 11th record down the left-hand page: 

The transcription of this record is:

"Nathaneel son of Samuell & Mary Guile borne 12th of 11th [16]78"

The source citation for this record is:
Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988, indexed database and digital image, (, "Dedham Births, Marriages and Deaths," Page 16 (Image 19 of 1916), Nathaneel Guile birth entry, 12 January 1678/9.

This is an Original Source record for the birth of Nathaniel Guild, son of Samuel and Mary (Woodcock) Guild. It is Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the birth date and place, and the names of his parents.

Nathaniel Guild (1679-1774) was the son of Samuel and Mary (Woodcock) Guild of Dedham.  Nathjaniel married Mehitable Hartshorn (1683-1771) before 1708, probably in Dedham.  They are my 7th great-grandparents, through their son Nathaniel Guild (1712-1796) who married Mary Boyden (1708-1776) in 1733 in Dedham.
