Business related materials in this collection include items such as checks, receipts, business and trade cards, bank notes, bank statements of condition, and promotional announcements and brochures. Religious materials include issues of the periodical The Parish News, dating between 1905 and 1906, as well as items pertaining to various Brooklyn churches that existed during the early 19th century, such as the Brooklyn Tabernacle, First Presbyterian Church, Saint Barnabas Church, and Saint Michael's Church of Bay Ridge. Tickets, pamphlets, service programs, announcements, miscellaneous flyers, newspaper clippings, and obituaries can be found here

A variety of materials documents civil organizations, including newsletters, special announcements, and invitations.
