Published originally as "History Bulletin II" by the New York State Library, this work is composed of two parts: (1) a miscellaneous record of deeds, mortgages, bonds, powers of attorney, and depositions running from January 10, 1658 to November 4, 1660; and (2) a series of wills, inventories, and settlements of estates from January 5, 1681 to October 30, 1765. The contents, which were abstracted from records found in the Albany County clerk's office, were translated from the original Dutch by Jonathan Pearson and readied for publication by A.J.F. Van Laer. The deeds, mortgages, and related property records have the virtue of tracing the chain of title to real estate from one colonist to another.
