Town Locks-Ups (cells in Village Courts) and Court Rooms; IV. Juror Records and Information; V. Citizenship Applications/Forms; and VI. Legal Concerns/Cases that affected the Town of Hempstead.
The Sub-Series: Bonds and Communications of Constables/Justices of the Peace are in alphabetical order by last name, Town Lock-Ups and Court Rooms are in alphabetical order by Village, and all other sub-series are in chronological order.
