The Archive preserves originals and makes them available at the click of a mouse.

There are some fascinating records to be found. To step back in history,
try a search of the "Records of Ye Towne Meetings of Lyn 1771" for "British".

High School Yearbooks, Annual Reports, Lists of Persons,
and other Town Documents  are also available.

Most of the Middle School Yearbooks are now online at the Archive!

The project was Federally funded through the Massachusetts Board
of Library Commissioners.  Scanning was done by the Digital Services
Department of the Boston Public Library.
All documents will eventually reside on the Digital Commonwealth.
