The compilers of this volume have presented complete lists of those admitted to full communion and those who subscribed to the covenant of the Old South Church for the full span of years stated in the title and have added biographical sketches of members admitted to full communion from 1669 to 1719.

By the middle of the seventeenth century, Congregational churches provided two paths to membership. Anyone willing to go through a rigorous examination of their experience of saving grace, and receiving the approval of other church members, could be a member in full communion, and receive all the benefits of church membership. Anyone who did not wish to submit to the examination of their experience of saving grace, but willing to subscribe to the church covenant, could be accepted to a lesser form of membership which would permit them to have their children baptized.

This volume begins with lists of the pastors and deacons of this church, and then provides full lists of each category of membership, presented first in chronological and then in alphabetical order. The volume concludes with brief biographical sketches of the members in full communion for the first fifty years of the existence of the Third Church.

When consulted in conjunction with the History of the Old South Church (Third Church) Boston, 1669-1884, this volume gives a comprehensive picture of this important congregation.
