Website redesign

We plan to add some new features to our website ( foremost being the ability to view all grantor and grantee indexes from 1630 to 1975 online. All of those indexes have been scanned and, for several years, have been available for viewing in PDF form on the registry's public access computers but we've run into many obstacles to placing them online. We believe we've got that resolved now.

Also, all pre-1950 documents which have been available online in a separate viewing and printing program will now be folded into the standard "masslandrecords" site in an "unindexed" tab that will allow retrieval by book and page number.

Finally, we will undertake a modest redesign of the site to make the information contained on it more relevant to today's practices and procedures.
