Document transformation  IN PROGRESS

notes

Early 2009: We have begun to transform and present this critically important document described briefly in the project Guide. Transcription of the numbers (especially 6s and 8s) has caused us problems and what you see represents our best guess at this time. Closer scrutiny is clearly needed.
Because it affords an unparalleled view of the community mainline during the War for Independence, this comprehensive survey is extremely useful for determining who was in Albany at that time and to what extent an individual's holdings can be evaluated. Comparing it with the less detailed assessment roll taken just seven months later furthers our comprehension of wartime conditions.
