How to cite The Wellesley Index

The form suggested here follows the scheme proposed by Hansard, in his first General Alphabetical Index, 1801-1826.

Title and description / session / paper number / volume number

e.g. Return of Number of Persons who have emigrated from G.B. and Ireland to Colonies and U.S.A., 1825-32; 1833 (696) XXVI.279

For a reference to a statement on a particular page of a paper, the title and description should be followed by the printed page number of the paper itself:

e.g. Papers on Union of British Columbia with Dominion of Canada. p.2; 1868-69 (390) XLIII.341
