ASV Indice 157 lists vols. 1-305 of the Fondo Garampi and provides detailed access to vols. 1-264. Entries for the first 264 vols. calendar select items in each busta and indicate the type of document (bolle, lettere in cifre, diario, inventario, etc.), a brief synopsis of the subject, the writer and recipient (if applicable), and the date. Whether the item is an original or a copy is not consistently noted.
ASV Indice 1068 is a register of letters in vols. 272-300 of the Fondo Garampi. Entries list writer, recipient, date and place the letter was written, volume, and folio. At the end of Indice 1068 there is another list that indicates which buste or parts of buste in Fondo Garampi have been lost.
ASV Indice 231, "Rubricella delli Tomi tre di Minute di Brevi a Principi di Paolo V e Gregorio XV," contains a note by Mercati that "questo volume fu trovato dall' Emo. Garampi nello spoglio delle sue carte rimasse alla cifra e fra consegnato ... 1786." This is not an index to any apparent series and there is no other indication that it came from this series. However its nature is like many of the volumes found here. The book is organized by type of business.

This work identifies series in the ASV that pertain to the French Revolution found in Fondo Garampi (vols. 95, 154, 159, 179, 214, and 264). Entries list the volume number, identify the total number of folios in a volume, provide the formal or a supplied title, summarize the materials in the volume concerning the French Revolution, and note the inclusive dates. At times, individual items are identified and described.
