Finding aids

Volume 1 of the schedule of the Wynnstay archive describing the volumes of rentals and estate accounts (compiled 1980) is available at NLW and HMC. The hard copy of the 1952 catalogue of manuscripts and documents is now redundant, replaced by this current electronic version. Card indexes describing in detail some of the deeds and documents of the 1952 deposit are kept with the archive (Box 159); please note that the document numbers in the card index are now redundant and the new numbers may be obtained by consulting the relevant section of the electronic catalogue. It is hoped that eventually a comparative table of old and new numbers will be supplied and kept with the card index.
