I would like to visit the Tresoar reading room early in the new year and have a couple of questions.
What do I need to bring with me to create copies of documents? Is it possible to scan pages myself and then forward them home by email? Or for scans should I bring a USB flash drive to store them on? If scans are not possible, may I take photographs of pages with my digital camera?
Is there an online database of records available in the Tresoar library? I would prefer to compile a list of the documents (with library catalogue numbers) I wish to browse through before visiting to save time. (EDIT: I found the Archievenoverzicht Tresoar page I need at http://www.archieven.nl/nl/zoeken?mivas ... iview=inv2
I have couple of specific questions:-
Are there any extant records before 1809 equivalent to those of the notarial archives? -- in particular wills and the assignment of guardians for orphaned children.
In the 1790s did the Frisian or national government (or Catholic church) keep any sort of record of immigrants - specifically immigrants from the various German states?
