DOCUMENTS

 

Not only are these documents great, they also give a peek into the past of what people where doing.  Find your family members here!  We have quite an assortment of old documents to choose from. 

Keep in mind, I did the very best I could to translate and transcribe the information from these documents.  As I am only human, it is highly possible that words and names have been mis-interpreted, mis-spelled, document itself could have had the name spelled differently, so please contact me for document condition, appearance, and further details before your purchase.  I like to keep disappointments to a minimum.
