Manuscript Sources
 

The Staatsbibliothek Preußischer Kulturbesitz in Berlin contains a Liber precum from this community, dating from the fifteenth century and owned by Anna von Köln, #Germ. 8o280. The Gymnasialbibliothek in Emmerich contains the statutes of the community, dating from the fifteenth-sixteenth century, # 14. The Chronicle of the community was held in the Stadtarchiv in Emmerich, but was presumably lost in the last world war. A photocopy of the chronicle is held in the Heimatmuseum, sine numero.
