Family Files – In addition to published and archival materials under family names, the Library keeps folders containing miscellaneous research materials on family names, with an emphasis on Cape Cod families. The link above will take you to a listing of the names.

Vertical Files – Folders in the Vertical File cover a variety of subjects and contain unbound materials that are unsuitable for storage on library shelves, but still of potential use to assist members in their research.
