Pennsylvania State Archives


MANUSCRIPT GROUPS:
MICROFILM LIST



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.
