Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788445464, Paperback)

This volume is the twelfth in a series devoted to presenting a transcription of the surviving serial manuscript records for the town of Wilmington, Essex County, New York, in the High Peaks region of the Adirondack Mountains. Starting in 1886, and continuing in the years covered in this volume, both the lot numbers and tract (complete with descriptive comments) are provided for taxable residents. The following information may also be recorded: number of acres, value of estate, value of personal property, total valuation, amount of tax, dog tax, whether the tax is paid, returned resident highway tax, and returned resident school tax. For lands of non-residents there is considerable information provided, but the owner's name is omitted. For some years (excluding 1892-4 and 1896), an end-of-year Town Supervisor's report (sometimes a newspaper clipping) is appended. It contains valuable information, as all town offices and officers are listed. In some cases the year-end report includes not just officers and amounts paid them, but others who were paid by the Town for services provided. Occasionally, comments are added which could prove useful or add a bit of "color" to your family portrait. The tax records have been transcribed as presented. All names have been reproduced as spelled in the original. A full name index adds to the value of this work.
