Anyone wanting to access the Manuscript Vermont State Papers will have to call our reference desk (802 828-2308) to set up an appointment to meet a staff member at Redstone (this will likely be on Mondays).  The Nye name index, which references the Manuscript Vermont State Papers, is here at Middlesex (and as before, the pre-1800 Nye entries are available online at: http://vermont-archives.org/research/database/nye.asp).
