LEDGER COLLECTION

MC 38

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

This is an artificial collection that was created to bring under one manuscript collection number the ledgers that do not contain enough information about their creators to permit individual collections under their names.

This collection, accompanied by an index, will permit a better use of the information the ledgers contain by local history researchers. This collection will always be considered open. Any ledger acquired that can not be given its own manuscript collection number will be added to this collection. The index will be updated with each addition.

ARRANGEMENT:The ledgers are listed in no specific order. The index will facilitate the research for specific material.

CONTENT: This collection contains ledgers for private businesses, social clubs, parish school districts, local government of the county, etc.
