  770. <span style="font-family: Didot; font-size: 19px;">Years ago, Daniel Driscoll in the Beverly, Massachusetts, town clerk's office provided a series of records about my early Preston family. Many of these were oversized family pages or family groups.&nbsp;</span><br />
  771. <span style="font-family: Didot; font-size: 19px;"><br /></span>
  772. <span style="font-family: Didot; font-size: 19px;">At the time, I'd not yet heard the term "<a href="http://www.bcgcertification.org/resources/standard.html" target="_blank">Genealogical Proof Standard.</a>" Still today,&nbsp;</span><span style="font-family: Didot; font-size: 19px;">I don't know the full history of these amazing early records, but the entries about my family include references to vital and church records, deeds, tax, probate, court records. &nbsp;</span><br />
  773. <span style="font-family: Didot; font-size: 19px;"><br /></span>
  774. <span style="font-family: Didot; font-size: 19px;">Even though I have conducted separate research about the families, every time I work with these records, I feel like I'm cheating.&nbsp;</span><br />
