In the British National Archives are Dutch sailing letters to be found.
The letters we mentioned before.
And were taken to England by the fishermen.
They were captured with the ships and ended up in the British archives where they were found in 1890 by Braunius.
Once a month one of these letters is published in Holland.They can be found in the KB.
And one day we hope to find a letter from our ancestors.
Hier volgt het interview uit het Leidsch Dagblad van 31-10-2009 met de Leidse maritiem historica Els van Eijck Heslinga.
