The First Documents Now Made Available

As we have announced recently that it is now technically possible on MARA’s online archive for us to share our books and documents from our digital archive, here is information about a few important documents made available.

The first documents that we make available here originate from two different private collections, namely George & Elsie Donabed Assyrian Collection (MA, USA) and Penna Redvanly Collection (NY, USA).
