Finding aids are descriptive inventories or indexes that provide access to the unpublished materials in the Norwich Historical Society’s archives.  If you are researching a family from Norwich, there could be materials in the photograph collection, general family vertical files, or within the family manuscript collection.  Finding aids will be added to the website as they become available.
