FMS, or Friends Manuscript Series, contains the personal records of individual Quakers. For example, D. Elton Trueblood’s personal papers. (As opposed to his college related papers, which would be housed with the college records.) FMS collections cover a wide variety of topics and include letters, photographs, clippings, genealogical material, artifacts, poetry, and anything else that an individual or family might create in their lifetime with enduring value. A member of the Archives' staff will be happy to assist you if you wish to study one or more of these collections.
All known Wayne County cemeteries were recorded and published in four volumes by Beverly Yount from 1966 to 1970 as Tombstone Inscriptions in Wayne County, Indiana. Yount’s personal copies of these volumes, with additions and corrections, can be found in FMS 66.
