Arrangement note

The Regla Supporting Material is organized into 3 series: Paleographic transcriptions, Miscellanea, and Indexes. The Paleographic series consists of bound transcriptions that were prepared by students of J. Horace Nunemaker between 1944 and 1949. The Miscellanea were prepared by Mrs. Knox between the 1960's and 1970's and are contained mostly in the indexes that provide access to "Three Centuries of Mexican Documents" by Jacqueline Gaines.

The Indexes series --patronymic and toponymic-- are on cards to which considerable biographical and geographical data have been added to aid in the identification of members of the Romero de Terreros family and other families related to the Counts of Regla, and also to aid in the identification of place names that appear in the Regla Papers.

A fourth series, Microfilm, includes two rolls of material that was not allowed to leave Mexico when the material was acquired in the early 1940s.
