This section contains historic manuscripts amongst which are those that document important events that family members participated in, either as key propellers, simple witnesses or otherwise.
We provide them here for easy consumption by researchers after extracting the text, translating it to English and providing brief research notes about the contents and context of the events they document. Thus they are transformed into accurate and clear sources and references for those interested in the many fields that can benefit from the information within. For example, most anthropological fields, historic, Islamic, economic and political.
