The University of Groningen and Tresoar, the Frisian Historical and Literary Centre at Leeuwarden have been building an electronic database for the Sound Toll Registers (STR), dubbed Sound Toll Registers online, short: STRO. The database is freely accessible by everybody via the internet: www.soundtoll.nl.
These records of the toll the king of Denmark levied on the passage of ships through the Sound, the strait between Denmark and Sweden linking the North Sea and the Baltic, are in important source of researching economic history of Europe and the larger world. They have been preserved for about 300 of the 360 years from 1497 to 1857 and include a practically uninterrupted series from 1574 to 1857. The STR contain information on about 1.8 million passages.

STR Online has been made possible by subsidies granted by:
NWO, Frisian cultural foundations, Fonds 21, Samenwerkende Maritieme Fondsen, Stichting De Grote Zuidwesthoek, Ottema-Kingma Stichting, Dr. Hendrik Mullerfonds, Stichting Jonkheer Rhijnvis Feith, Stichting Professor van Winter Fonds and Huygens ING.
