Maine Town Reports: Lakeville documents Pilot

Plantation of Lakeville Bottle Lake, Lakeville, Maine
1859 1860 1861 1862

The pilot materials include legislation establishing Lakeville Plantation and part of the warrant for the very first Plantation meeting. Note the inclusion of voting lists from these early days. The four years of material illustrate how digital copies of the originals (facsimiles) can be presented side by side with translations for ease of reading the content.
The selected handwritten documents represent a unique partnership with the Lakeville community. Mr. Gordon Mott, working with the Town Clerk, Selectboard and local volunteers provided Fogler Library with digital files captured from the originals. The digital archive files were then reformatted and full text searching added through the use of optical character recognition software.
