Deposit Accounts, 1852-1896

 Series
Identifier: Record Group 1 Subgroup 2 Series 4

Scope and Contents note

Consists of a full run of Riggs & Co. individual deposit ledgers. Many of the ledgers have corresponding indexes. Please note that deposit ledgers without indexes will require significant research time to review for specific patron names because Riggs & Co. did not record patron records alphabetically within each letter. For instance, Brenner is followed by Blake then Boyle, then Barnes, then Berry, then Brown, etc. See flat boxes 58 and 99 for African American depositors identified by the bank.
