Respect du fonds
These are copies in our Detroit (Mich.) Collection, 1672, 1858, of documents which were copied by hand from the French Archives, which is clearly stated on the documents. These are in French. They include materials by/about French Canada and Michigan, such as letters and reports. The records are kept together by colored ribbons, binding related materials together. Other records in the collection are in English.
|Here is one example with a larger and smaller size document that are related which are tied together by a ribbon.|
|1 folder of numbered documents, showing different colored ribbons holding like topic materials together, just as they were kept in the French Archives. This style continues the original way the materials were created and stored.|
