Hi, I'm Clair. I am currently working on a project, a segment of my family. The family name I'm particularly interested in is Snow, between 1700 and 1850 and primarily in New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts. This particular Snow family moved to New Hampshire from Massachucetts sometime after 1740 and before 1767.and many left New Hampshire for Vermont and elsewhere in the early 1800's. Would like to obtain as much documentation as may be available. Thanks.

Hi Liz,

Thank you for that information. I have just sent a request through snail mail to Massachusetts archives which was recommended to me by the Waltham Archives. I have saved the information page, in case Massachusetts Archives fails me.

Thanks again,

Hi Jen,
Well, I haven't found any online naturalization records but I did find a page that helps explain where you can contact for Bristol County records (both the towns in your initial post are in Bristol Co.):

Bristol Naturalization Records Bristol County Superior Court 1805-1991: Fall River District Court (1885-1906); New Bedford District Court (1885-1906); Taunton District Court (1885-1906 index only)[Massachusetts Archives Division]

Hi Jen,
I will do a little more poking around to see about naturalization records. I can get really impatient waiting for things to be sent to me too. :-) If it helps any, sometimes naturalization records are sent to me much quicker than the time frame estimated by the archive.

Thank you but I have been researching the lines for quite awhile have the ancestry o both New Brunswick, Canada lines backwards and forward. This was just trying to finish loose ends. Thanks for all your help. I will probably have to attempt to get it from the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court in Boston like I was told to do.
I hate snail mail and waiting for results dependent on someone else's search time frames. I waited 3 weeks to hear a not found from Waltham, Massachusetts. Thanks again. If ever you need anything feel free to contact me.

By the way their library database turned up several books on Boudreau lines. Without seeing the book or the full citation, I couldn't even begin to guess whether any of them are the right line (I don't even know how common a name it is in Canada/France). I think their library database is free for the public to search if you want to try it yourself. If it's not I can repeat the search and paste the info here for you to follow up on.
