    I need some help on this one for sure! This seems to be a document from May the 19 of 1731. This was in the bottom of a box of old papers. Am I reading this correctly ?? There are other numbers on the right that read: 24-12-00. I am not clear on just what I have here. Any help will be very much appreciated.
    Thanks

      It was typed on an old school manual typewriter. They were developed in the late 1800's. With the date you've included I think it was written on Dec 24, 1900

      Agree with slim-- typed copy (from 24 DEC 1900) of a 1731 document.

      What about the Embossed seal at the top. could this have been added in 1900??

      Thank You ROBinHawaii. Is it your opinion as well that this was typed in 1900? I have researched and found and downloaded the Original Will of this Gentleman. It is handwritten and the script is almost uninteligible,. I am relatively sure that this is a later copy,but why would a Will from 1731 be transcribed so many years after the fact. I am supposing because of an ownership issue. Strange to me to have any issue come up from so many years back. I guess we will never know. What is your take on this situation?
