Language of Materials



The collection consists of a daybook with notes from a genealogy on the Hans Joist Hite Family.


This daybook was found in a box titled Gallaher Family, with two other ledgers: Household Management Ledger (Ms2012-085), and Olive Family Genealogy Notes (Ms2012-086). No obvious connection could be found between the three ledgers, so they were processed as separate collections.

Acquisition Information

Processing Information

The processing, arrangement, and description of the Hite Family Genealogy Notes was completed in January 2013.
