[182] The Genealogical Register is compiled from the following sources:—

(1) A Church Book given to the Second Church in Cambridge by the Rev. Samuel Cooke, pastor. This book has a list of the members admitted at the gathering of the church 9 Sept. 1739—the admissions to full communion by the church—the admissions to the church by the Rev. Thaddeus Fiske—the members of the Northwest Precinct Church regularly dismissed—the names of those who owned their covenant during Mr. Cooke's ministry, also those during the ministry of Mr. Fiske—and other records relating to the church.

(2) Scattered records of births, baptisms, marriages and deaths in the Northwest Precinct in Cambridge, which included a portion of the upper part of Charlestown afterward annexed to West Cambridge, now Arlington, kept in diaries or other records by the Rev. Samuel Cooke, pastor of the church, with the record of baptisms, marriages, deaths or burials in the same Precinct kept by the Rev. Thaddeus Fiske—and the baptisms, marriages and deaths in West Cambridge recorded by the Rev. D. Damon.

(3) A record of deaths from the more ancient gravestones in the old burying-ground, &c.
