Ontario Government Record Series RG 17-20
1.5 metres of textual records
Series consists of files pertaining to Ontario's local and provincial history, as well as Canadian history, for use by Archives of Ontario staff when responding to reference inquiries. The files may contain correspondence between archivists and researchers, memoranda, notes, newspaper clippings, brochures, as well as copies of newspaper clippings, press clippings, and archival documents.
Some files were lost before or during the transfer of the series to archival custody, including all files numbered 700 and over.
The records in this series are filed according to subject. In the early 1980s, the files were arranged in alphabetical order and then numbered. New files created thereafter were numbered sequentially, and the files are now in numerical order. Files for some categories of peoples or organizations are filed under a general title.
