Archive Relating to European Land Claims, 1868-1895.
1868 - [Manuscript]. American Company for Settling Claims in Europe. [Archive Relating to European Land Claims, 1868-1895]. Forty-four printed and manuscript documents ranging in size from 3" x 5" to 8-1/2" x 14." Content to rectos and versos of most. Toning, fold lines, light browning to edges, light soiling, a few minor stains, a few items torn along fold lines. * These documents were produced by or for the American Company for Settling Claims in Europe, a New York City-based committee of sixteen that pursued claims based on European lineage in exchange for 25% of any settlement. According to these documents, vast sums of money were involved in Germany, England, Scotland and, especially, Holland (the Theobold Metzger estate). Included are printed circulars asking heirs/claimants to come forward, manuscript agreements, correspondence, printed rules governing duty stamps on official documents in the Netherlands, a handbill from an attorney who specializes in "claims of heirs to unclaimed money and estates in all parts of the world," and manuscript notes indicated cases where committee members sold or tried to sell shares in prospective claims.
