This is a listing of Manuscript Group series available on microfilm. The list
shows the series title and dates as well as the number of microfilm rolls available.
When the description states "partial," it means that the series takes
up only part of a microfilm roll, and is accompanied by other filmed items. The
State Archives has a guide onsite which provides additional information--namely
the drawer numbers for the microfilm rolls--so as to allow for public retrieval.
Not all series listed have been filmed in their entirety. Comparison of the dates
on the microfilm lists to the dates on the list of processed
MG series will confirm if there are unfilmed records that will need to be
viewed in original format.
