Old and/or Historical Documents
Posted by Michael on January 21, 2007
My wife and I sometimes come across old documents from time to time, and we’ll share them with you along with any history we dig up. We’ll post a scanned copy of the document with a link to a higher resolution version. Unfortunately there are a few things we won’t do:
- The documents are not up for public display, no exceptions. This is mostly for privacy reasons. If you need a even higher resolution copy of the scanned document, you can email us, we’ll be glad to do it.
- The documents are not up for sale, no exceptions. I understand that families like to collect old documents signed by their ancestors, but most documents have 2+ signatures from different families. I’m not going to choose which family to give/donate/sell to.
- We do not authenticate nor guarantee the authenticity of any of the documents we display here, nor do we guarantee the history/facts we present from our research. We try to be as accurate as we possibly can, but errors to creep in and sometimes different accounts contradict each other.
- We are not in the business of buying documents. Basically because we cannot afford the prices most Document Vendors charge.
We welcome any corrections to the history/facts about our documents, and will credit the source. Correspondance is encouraged, and we would love to hear from you. Thanks for stopping by!
