Maryland Manuscripts

The Maryland Manuscripts groups consists of small groups of or single letters, documents, etc. that have been individually catalogued. There are approximately 380 items that date from 1800 or earlier; among these are letters, deeds, bonds, petitions, bills of sale, surveys, promissory notes, business ledgers, slavery documents, books of poems, and marriage certificates.

Access to these single items is possible through personal names, titles, and by subject -- by using the Maryland Manuscripts catalogue and supplementary automated finding aid.
