Here you will find interesting sources of information such as the whereabouts of important Last Wills and Testaments. They usually contain a great deal of genealogical information for family historians should they wish to conduct their own private research.

Last Wills & Testaments

Many Last Wills, Testaments, and other documents can be accessed through the U.K. National Archives. A search for "Crommelin" or "Testart" should bring up many documents. There is a nominal charge (today 3.50) for each of the data. Just a few examples:

Reformation Museum, Geneva, Switzerland

This is a great place to visit for those who are interested in the history of the Reformation, to which our family was closely associated. There is a lot of Dutch history here, such as the Dort Synod - De Synode van Dordrecht, 1618-1619. Many of the magnificent books were printed in Holland (and of course in Dutch). These books are behind glass because of their great value.
