Notebooks Finding Aids now available online; for index click here.

The Fiske Notebooks were established as an original resource, part of the Library's traditional and strong interest in the preservation of information of genealogical interest. The Fiske Notebooks are uncatalogued, and there are no references to them in our online catalog. In them one will find copies of Arthur Fiske's genealogical research notes, records of births, marriages, and deaths, cemetery inventories, family group sheets, pamphlets, photo copies of articles, photo copies of excerpts from rare books, newsletters, ephemera, and more. The notebooks are classfied by geographic location and shelved with other items of the same class in the main collection.
