The fonds consists primarily of printed invitations to Bechtel family reunions.

In 2018, Ken Bechtel donated a scanned copy of a 1642 mandate regarding the Anabaptists of Schleitheim, and a transcription of the interrogation of his ancestor Christian Bechtold (b. 1595). A translation of the mandate was provided to the Archives by Erica Jantzen.
