This CD-ROM contains an electronic image reproduction of a ledger book kept between the years 1827 and 1851 by Amos Gere (aka Geer) who lived in the vicinity of Ledyard, Connecticut. He was a farmer and a treasurer of the Congregational Church. These fascinating entries (in a reasonably legible penmanship) portray a man who provided a wide range of goods and services for friends and neighbors. For the most part, they pay him in goods and services, rather than cash. Inferences can sometimes be drawn from entries. For example, in 1830 Capt. Brewster is charged for a load of wood delivered to Mr. Burgess; are they related? The surnames which appear most frequently are: Allyn, Avery, Bill(s), Brown, Chapman, Gallup, Geer/Gere, Latham, Morgan, Rogers, Smith, Spicer, and Williams. The images on this CD are gray-scale which provides maximum legibility, and an electronic name and place index has been added to facilitate research.
