The Malta His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety and the No­tar­ial Archives Re­source Coun­cil unite to safe­guard pa­per her­itage

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The Malta His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety has teamed up with the No­tar­ial Archives Re­source Coun­cil to con­tinue pre­serv­ing the na­tion’s pa­per her­itage. The do­na­tion was made dur­ing one of the Malta His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety’s lec­tures, dur­ing which the so­ci­ety do­nated the sum of €1,500. This do­na­tion will be di­rected to­wards the con­ser­va­tion of three Cor­sair doc­u­ments at the No­tar­ial Archives.

Th­ese con­tain in­ter­est­ing fea­tures such as daily travel logs of var­i­ous cor­sair ex­pe­di­tions, Turk­ish doc­u­ments, and the highly prized sig­na­tures of his­tor­i­cal fig­ures like the same Guglielmo Lorenzi who, to­gether with Dun Mikiel Xerri, was ex­e­cuted by the French on 17 Jan­uary, 1799. Other lists shed light on the type of food taken on board and on ships’ ar­ma­ments such as can­noni, trom­bone a cav­al­letto, trom­bone a mano, pis­tole, and ban­doliere.

This spon­sor­ship is of great sig­nif­i­cance to the No­tar­ial Archives Re­source Coun­cil since this time it is an­other non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tion, it­self de­pen­dent on the pri­vate sec­tor for fund­ing, which is sup­port­ing the No­tar­ial Archives.

The ini­tia­tive of the Malta His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety, which is ex­em­plary for other or­gan­i­sa­tions and com­pa­nies, makes the so­ci­ety an ac­tive con­trib­u­tor to the preser­va­tion of our pa­per her­itage.
