Oversize Collection Gems

Our Thursday morning History Helpers are often immersed in projects to improve access to GHS collections. This morning, while hunting for a folder of early cemetery plans, volunteers encountered a trove of gems in our “oversize collection”.

Archival items that don’t fit into our usual organization of collection boxes on shelves, etc. may be file into extra-large file folders, with reference to OC A, OC B, etc. One such folder contained these beautiful family certificates.

Descendants are encouraged to contact the Gray Historical Society for high resolution digital copies of these wonderful documents.
