In case you haven't checked out the library sites lately, I have just
discovered the excellent catalog listings of special collections at UNC
(esp the Southern Historical Collection).
Some are digitilized (actually ON line!).....but not too many.
STILL.....they HAVE put a lot of the details of what are IN the various
papers, etc. within the collections online....and there is a wealth of
information to be gleaned from this. No dout the same is true of other
collections, such as at Duke....
but for UNC, go to:
Then, click on "Collections" ... then AGAIN click on "collections" <g>
that should get you to here: http://www.lib.unc.edu/cdd/crs/collections.html
Then go to "Special Collections and Formats" --
Then go to "manuscripts": http://www.lib.unc.edu/mss/
There's also one for "maps"!!
But under the "manuscripts" you find several interesting collections....the
Southern Historical Collection.......BUT, do NOT overlook the "Selected
Business History Resources" http://www.lib.unc.edu/mss/bushist.htm
I found a LOT of good stuff in there!! They are grouped by types of
businesses, and there are lots of personal papers, etc. in there as well!
Some of the catalog descriptions give *great* details of families as well!
Hope this proves helpful to some of you. It is great fun to explore!
All the best,
