Landrecht is the law of the land. Before the introduction of the civil code in the Netherlands in 1809, each province, region, or domain had their own laws. Understanding the local laws and customs can help you interpret records and understand your family history.
The National Archives of the Netherlands and Noord-Hollands Archief conducted a project using the Transkribus HTR (Handwritten Text Recognition) platform. The aim was to semi automatically transcribe 2 million pages of old Dutch texts.
The transcribed archives are 17th and 18th century documents from the Dutch East-Asia Company (VOC). And 19th century notarial deeds from Noord-Hollands Archief and other archives in the provinces.
