Not all the issues survived. Those available were assembled and microfilmed in 1950, and a subject index was created at the same time. This microfilm was the basis for the current image version.
Several institutions contributed issues for the initial microfilming and are cooperating in the production of the current project:
College of William and Mary; Colonial Williamsburg Foundation; The Johns Hopkins University; Maryland Historical Society; Massachusetts Historical Society; Virginia Historical Society.
