Guide to the Manuscript Collections of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, First Edition, Edited by Timothy Salls; paperback; 752 pp; ISBN: 9780880821445; 2002; Item NE06.
157 years after the first manuscripts were donated to NEHGS, we are proud to produce the first-ever catalog of the R. Stanton Avery Special Collections Department. Our collection holds the largest amount of genealogical material in the country, yet most members have indicated they are unfamiliar with the wealth of information available to them through this collection. This guide is an easy means to identify which of the over 5,500 entries have relevant individual bible records, diaries, account books, research notes, and more.
