I would ask the taxpayers for money to restore them and keep them.

Subject: what would you do?
A local resident just dropped off a box that contains the
"abstract of individual lists" from the late 1890's and early
1900's. The bindings are very moldy. I have grand lists for these
years, so I am assuming these are copies or the abstracts that were prepared
before the final grand list was lodged. The grand lists that I have
are in reasonable shape, with no signs of mold or other damage other than wear
If I put them in the vault with my other grand lists, will the mold migrate?
Since I have grand lists for those years, do I need to keep these?
Would you spend restoration money to clean them up?
If not, how would you store them?
Offering them to the historical society is not a good option since they have no resources and no way to store them.
