Overview

A major center for research on early American history, the library of Colonial Williamsburg has acquired a large number of important manuscript collections through the years and has regularly had them filmed as a security and preservation measure. At the same time, it has acquired microform copies of many collections in its field held by other institutions. These collections range from state and local official government documents to family papers, music books, playbills, and other materials. The publication of this inventory allows scholars to learn quickly and economically what manuscripts are available in Williamsburg. Scholars of colonial American history will find the fiche indispensable for locating any of the approximately 130 Williamsburg collections.
