Seals had long been used to authenticate royal charters in both eastern and western Frankia, but they were pressed onto the sheet itself—except, that is, in the case of seals made of lead or gold which were affixed with strings of hemp or ribbons.

But in contrast to the situation with other types of short document, large numbers of charters survive in their original form—for England, at least.

Of the one thousand texts known, for example, for the Anglo-Saxon period, a good number, some two hundred, survive as ‘originals’: that is, for two-hundred or so the earliest witness now extant is a single sheet written in a hand consistent with the stated date and place of issue—one made in the presence (or with the knowledge) of the king in whose name it was issued.

In its classic form—as found in the tenth century, before a tendency to abbreviate takes over in the later eleventh and twelfth centuries—the English royal charter typically had most of the following components: Seals—impressions set in a mixture of bees-wax and resin made using a metal matrix—were used to close letters (especially official correspondence) in Anglo-Saxon England, but not, it seems, to validate charters.

They seldom provide enough information to establish fully the contexts in which they were issued, but the data that remains can have immense value.

Currently, 2,953 passenger lists dating from 1920 to 1939 are kept in the Archive of the Bremen City Chamber of Commerce. For example: For Antwerp, the Family History Library is currently filming emigration records and hotel registers that include Germans, especially from the Rhineland and the Southwestern part of Germany, and give towns of origin. These lists cover parts of the years 1871, 1876-1891, and 1896-1898.

Members of the Family History Association of Bremen, "die Maus", are currently creating an index of this material for the Internet. These records are cataloged under "Belgium, Antwerpen, Antwerpen- Emigration-Immigration". The archives address is: Landesarchiv Greifswald Martin-Andersen-Nexo-Platz 1 D-17489 Greifswald Germany Friedrich R. Other German ports were primarily located along the Eastern sea board and included Gdansk, Libau, Memel, and Riga.

These witnesses are particularly important in so far as they are free from the distortions introduced by repeated copying and interpolation—by the editorial interventions of those who found their texts insufficient. Changes in legal practice and the invention of new obligations often exposed gaps in the provisions made when charters were first issued, necessitating the modification of clauses and sometimes the insertion of entirely new provisions.
