FamilySearch Wiki ~ Charlestown, Massachusetts

The recent series of articles about Boston and towns surrounding her are a blessing to genealogy researchers.  They are significant resources that rank in the top tier of in-depth research guides for historical and genealogical students and investigators.

The Charlestown article starts with an introduction and history.

Followed by a large historical data table that includes border changes from 1630 thru 1874.

The article continues with town histories, surnames found in census records followed by sections on vital records, city directories, cemeteries, churches, town records, newspapers, libraries and historical society.

I won’t detail them here do to their length and depth, leaving that treasure for you to uncover when you visit the article.

Even if you don’t have ancestral families who lived in that area, peruse the article just to see a research resource that is done right.
