1867 Plymouth County Massachusetts Directory

The 1867 Plymouth County Massachusetts directory, and historical register of the Old Colony, containing an historical sketch of the county, and of each town in the county; a roll of honor, with the names of all soldiers of the army and navy, from this county, who lost their lives in service; an alphabetical list of the voters; a complete index to the mercantile, manufacturing, and professional interests of the county, together with much valuable miscellaneous matter.

This book, with its 425 pages, was the first attempt at a Directory and History, so far as Plymouth County is concerned. The publisher stated in their introduction that they wished to provide:

A condensed and yet a, comprehensive Historical sketch of each town in the County.

The names, residences and occupations of the voters of the County, as well as & General Business Directory of the same.

A good advertising medium for the business men, both in and out of the County.

Had they realized at the outset the very large outlay of time and money the enterprise would require, they might have shrunk from engaging in it. We historians and genealogists are certainly glad they didn’t! They aimed as far as practical at accuracy of information, but the reader will see that in such & work, dealing as it does mainly with peoples names, there is peculiar liability to error.
