Jellis Family fonds, 1866-1995
15 cm of textual records. -- 55 photographs
Harvey and Bessie Jellis have operated a family farm in the
Coulter, Manitoba area for more than half a century.
The material was donated to the University of Manitoba Archives
& Special Collections by Harvey and Bessie Jellis in 1997.
The fonds consists of farm records, legal document,; geneaological
information, diaries, photographs, and memorabilia pertaining
to the Jellis family farm. The material contains a variety
of land deeds and titles; oil leases and indentures; grain
Permit Books; bills and receipts for farm equipment; and diary
entries relating to the Jellis's agricultural operation which
complements the repository's other holdings and will interest
anyone involved in agricultural research, particularly in
southwest Manitoba. Six letters between an American and Canadian
Jellis cousin during World War I are of particular interest.
