Scope and content

The correspondence consists of letters relating entirely to Gordon Myles family research activities. They represent an organized search for information from a wide range of relatives, family acquaintances and people sharing his family name(s), as well as from archival repositories and libraries. As the research grew, the circle widened to include correspondents from all over North America.

Many of the outgoing letters were accompanied by a detailed, customized questionnaire, blank copies of which were kept with the outgoing correspondence. Replies were attached to the outgoing correspondence, and the completed questionnaires were filed in the appropriate family file. The blank questionnaires have been removed from the correspondence, but have been retained in file 1.11 in this series. The correspondence is arranged chronologically by the date of the outgoing letter.
