Earlier this year, the Massachusetts vital records for the years 1916-1920 were transferred from the Massachusetts Registry of Vital Records and Statistics to the Massachusetts Archives.  The website of the Massachusetts Archives states that these records will not be available for public viewing until after they have been digitized by FamilySearch.  When I arrived at the Massachusetts Archives on July 1, 2011, I was told that some of the records were, in fact, available on microfilm.  This record was one of those available.  The microfilm copy was poor, as evidenced by the images shown here.  Fortunately, the photocopy I have is readable, even though portions of the digital image are not.
