4.2.2 Calendars and Registers of Administrative Documents


These are primarily the work of the PRO (now the National Archives (external link)), who began publishing calendars of their records in 1854. They are generally in the language of the original, and their purpose is to provide catalogues of the series and give summary notes of the contents of each item.
