"The original documents here printed were kept, with hundreds of other old papers relating to the town of Providence, in cloth bags in the office of the town and city clerk, until the year 1845, when they were deposited with the Rhode Island Historical Society for safe keeping. Soon after they were received by the Society there were pasted into scrap books for their better preservation, but without any particular classification or chronological order. It was not until after the city again assumed the custody of them, and they were repaired and arranged, that the relation which one paper had to another was discovered. The originals are now included in the volume of Providence Town Papers no. 2, and are numbered respectively 0505 0511, 0524, and 0532. For similar tax lists during the Andros period, the reader is referred to the First Report of the Record Commissioners of Boston."

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

We will use this information to improve our records.
