These documents consist primarily of correspondence exchanged between members of the Edison and Miller families. Most of the letters are by Edison's second wife, Mina Miller Edison, and by her parents, siblings, in-laws, children, and stepchildren. There are only a few letters to and from Thomas A. Edison. In addition to the correspondence, there are also laboratory notebooks, loose technical notes, reminiscences by Edison, newspaper clippings, business correspondence, a company minute book, and documents relating to property owned by Edison in Florida and New Jersey.
Unless otherwise indicated, all of the family-related letters have been selected. The two notebooks containing reminiscences by Edison were published in the William H. Meadowcroft Papers, Thomas A. Edison Papers: A Selective Microfilm Edition, Part IV (1899-1910).
Correspondence by family members can also be found in the Charles Edison Fund Collection; in the Family Records Series in Part III of the digital edition and in Part IV and Part V of the microfilm edition; and in the various "Family" folders in the Document File (Parts I-IV) and the Edison General File (Part V).
