Scope and arrangement
The De Groat Family Genealogical Research Papers contain Walter Bradford De Groat's genealogical notes and related correspondence and photographs on the De Groat and allied families including the Block, Field and Kennelly families. The notes are primarily handwritten, and sorted by family. Included with the notes is correspondence related to research, both letters of inquiry for information and letters sent by others to request De Groat's services as a genealogist. There are also copies of newspaper articles, some family correspondence, all relating to genealogical matters, and photographs, which are typically attached to notes or letters.
