Processing information note

Although this collection was not in any particular order when accessioned, some material had been grouped by family name or by type (e.g., genealogical information; travel diaries; photographs), presumably by Ruth Ottaway; this general grouping was the basis for the current arrangement of the bulk of material into series centered on individuals.
