Some of the collections remain offline. This is due to the ongoing upgrade to the website. I have completed most of the technical changes and am now rebuilding each of the 35 collections with a cleaner interface, more Henry number links and higher resolution source images. You can check the Whats Available link at the bottom of the page for the status of the many collections on the site, and as always check the blog page for the latest info on the site!

Welcome to the Collections at The Caperton Society! this is the jumping off point to the many collections available here. The Main Menu to the left will take you to the Eight Major Collections. There are currently over 1000 extracted and over 2000 images of actual source documents, and that number is still less than half of what remains to be placed online. If you have documents you would like to add please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.:
