Thank you so much for your answer to my query. Almost all the records that I would be interested in would have been in some of those damaged records . . . . approximately 1675 - 1720.

Since I live 3000 miles from Rhode Island the possibility of visiting the town hall to search those records myself is not likely. And since I need to do an exhaustive and likely time-consuming search the cost of having someone do it for me is not possible! A problem for many of us whose ancestors left the eastern shores for a better life westward!

You have not said that those restored records have been microfilmed. I do have a microfilmed copy of the will of John Sheldon d. 1705 in Kingstown. The document does not appear to be at all damaged and it is on microfilm.

the library catalog site at has microfilm titled "Probate and Town Council records vol. 5-8 1692- 1756". By the title it would seem that would include those damaged records. Would you know about that?
