Certificates of Appointment
Description: The certificates in this collection are miscellaneous in type, and include those awarded to elementary school students for good conduct; those given by religious institutions to individuals who enrolled in their church activities; and those conferring appointments to various posts. Several herein refer to various members of a family, but by and large there is no connection between them. The List which follows is not arranged in any particular order. The provenance is unclear, though it is known that in a few cases, these certificates were pulled out from a main body of manuscripts of a particular family or institution. Though the vast majority of them are for the nineteenth century several are for the twentieth century. Measurements given are rounded out to the nearest inch, and include the full body of the item, that is, borders and all.
