Manuscript Vermont State Papers
The Manuscript Vermont State Papers (c. 1760 to 1860) include the earliest records of Vermont state government. Individuals who signed petitions to the legislature, received pardons, were paid out of the state treasury, or otherwise interacted with the state government may appear in the records.
The Nye Index offers name and subject access to these records. The portion of the index which references records created before 1800 can be searched online. The entire index can be researched in our Reference Room.
