I agree with you, I just last night found a Netherlands Archival site where
one can access the actual documents copies and view these on djvu, I have
viewed pages and pages of documents from different law firms in the 1700's
about my 6th GGrandfather, Barend CRAMER, [a koopsman from Amsterdam] and
his wife Garcia Maria Van SOESTDIJK and both their parents, Garcia went mad
and used to run around the roof tops in Amsterdam stark naked, cut up
pillows and threw these and coins into the street, really interesting stuff!
these documents were about her estate, wills etc and much more, the strange
thing is that I can read almost every thing that was written and still
understand the same, weird, and all this was written in the 1700's. By 1am
this morning I had got to the year 1783, starting from the year 1745, the
documents also covered property purchases and sales over this period.
