Grey Box Genealogy & Local History Collection

The "Grey Box" Collection consists of unpublished genealogies, local histories and more. The collection is held in the Reference section of the New Glasgow Library.

KEY

This index includes two types of entries: 1. main and 2. secondary (cross references). This latter type is always followed by parentheses ( ) and contains the direction "see ..." . All items are arranged alphabetically by the word or phrase which is in bold lettering - whether in a main or secondary entry. The use of square brackets[ ] may represent material that was in parentheses in the original material OR had been added by the indexer for such things as alternate names or corrections or information deemed to be helpful to the researcher.

Surnames beginning with "Mac" or "Mc" are arranged separately and it is therefore suggested that researchers check under both options since these two were often used interchangeably.
