The New England Historic Genealogical Society, 99-101 Newbury St. Boston MA 02116 USA, began collecting books, manuscripts, and other resources shortly after it was founded in 1845. Unpublished manuscript material is held by the Society's R. Stanton Avery Special Collections and include family and personal papers, records of family associations, papers of professional and amateur genealogists, and primary source documents that support genealogical and local history research. The R. Stanton Avery Special Collections holdings concentrate on New England and New York but includes items from other locations throughout North America, Europe, and beyond. The R. Stanton Avery Special Collections holdings date primarily from the 1600’s to the present with select documents dating back to the late 1300's.
