This finding aid describes materials on microfilm held by the Kansas State Historical Society. Microfilm may be used in the Research Room in the societyâ€™s Center for Historical Research during regular research hours. Microfilm may also be borrowed through interlibrary loan for your use at a participating public, academic, or research library. Information on interlibrary loan is available from the Kansas State Historical Society and on its web site, http://www.kshs.org. Support for telephone, mail and online research and reference is limited.
In a continuing effort to improve the completeness and accuracy of finding aids, revisions are made as more or new information becomes available. Consequently, finding aids in paper format, on microfilm, and the societyâ€™s web site may differ slightly.
Descriptions are often based on a preliminary inspection of the material. As such, they may contain misspellings or other inaccuracies based on folder headings and other sources within the materials. As the collections are arranged and as time permits, these finding aids are improved and corrected. If you spot an error, please feel free to report it to the reference staff or an archivist.
The district clerksâ€™ registers contain information on district boundaries; registers of funds received and warrants and other payments; school censuses; clerksâ€™ reports; and minutes of annual and special school meetings.
