HISTORY
These files were part of a transfer of 386 record cartons to the Archives in January 1995. The record series contained approximately 92 cartons of files pertaining to meetings of the Board of Chosen Freeholders. With approval of the Clerk of the Board, these files were weeded for documents duplicative of the Minute Books (Series 1900). As a result of this procedure, thirty-six boxes of files were retained and fifty-six discarded.
SCOPE & CONTENT
