Welcome to the Cherry Gertzel Archive. This website and the descriptions it contains is a work in progress.
Currently, the OmekaS database documents the temporary index created when sorting out the Gertzel collections at her house. The records are minimally described and organised according to the container. Each container has a code that corresponds to an activity represented in the documents and the number of the container. e.g. T2 = teaching materials in container 2.
