Comprehensive research file containing correspondence, research, articles, and newspaper articles/clippings compiled over time by various named and un-named researchers, separated into a number of files. In addition to genealogical information contained in brief handwritten biographies there are also transcriptions of cemetery records and a family tree (Sue Leong). The file also contains a copy of Suzanne McWha’s article on Marion Henty’s wedding dress and a long newspaper article.

The value of the file is that it is comprehensive and mentions Henty relatives who are not named Henty.
