The documents are originals and cover the period between the 16th and the 19th century. The paper presents the abstracts of 63 original documents enclosed by the Folder No. 6040. The set of documents include information on two families of importance for the Romanian history: the boyars Prăjescu and the legendary gentry family of Şoimăreşti. Most of the information regard two of the villages owned by these two families: Purceleşti and Stolniceni, of the former counties of Suceava and Roman. One can conclude that the documents in this folder are an important source for the scholars studying the genealogy of Prăjescu family, the relatives, their landholdings or other elements of interest for the history of Romanians.
