Index to the Owen ManuscriptsCode:
The Owen Manuscripts are an invaluable resource to those researching ancestors in the Manchester area during the 19th and earlier centuries and consist of notebooks recording tens of thousands of pages of information relating to Manchester and Cheshire as well as some from further afield. The Manuscripts include biographies, local history, parish register and monumental inscription transcriptions. M & L FHS holds a copy of the films of the Owen Manuscripts in the library for use by members. A copy is also available at Manchester Archive & Local Studies. This index to the subjects covered in the manuscripts is reprinted from Ernest Axon's index of 1900 with the addition of a later supplement. A5, 34pp.
