Biographical or historical data
The business records, corporations, partnerships records group encompasses a broad range of non-public as well as public records. The official records that are found in this category involve records/registrations of partnerships and charters. The bulk of the material in this category was originally non-public, being the operating papers of private individuals and companies. This includes the whole range of administrative and fiscal records for businesses. The material most often appears to have come into the possession of the court as part of a law suit. In this case, the business's books became exhibits in the trial and were retained by the court as evidence. In some instances, a notation indicating that the items were exhibits can be found written on the volumes. The types of records found in this group include account books, accounts receivable, bankbooks, cancelled checks, cashbooks, contracts, daybooks, inventories, invoices, journals, ledgers, letter books, minutes, payroll book, receipt books, sales books, stock certificates, and time books.
