Cathcard refers to the detailed Rolodex card name index created by William Cathcart. It catalogs all names that occur in the Shaker journals collection built by William Cathcart as director of Western Reserve Historical society. They are available nationwide on microfilm, at many university and major libraries. The card index occurs on Reel 123 and described as WRHS index entry

More about that in the Richmond_introduction

The cards have been digitized by Shakerpedia with transcription as a crowd sourced project.
