Archive of Family Papers

In addition to manuscripts and printed books, the Library served as a repository for Khalidi family papers, including court documents, official letters of appointment of family members, and personal correspondence, including of Musa, Taha, Yusuf Diya and Ruhi Khalidi, all of whom were scholars and public servants (deputies for Jerusalem in the Ottoman parliament and Ottoman Courts between 1660 – 1920). These papers and documents have been partially digitalized and catalogued, and therefore are not yet accessible on this website (but may be consulted at the Library).
