Chapter Summary

This archival guide concerns the maritime relations between Russia and other countries around the Baltic Sea (including the Netherlands) roughly between 1450 and 1800. It presents an overview of the most significant archival sources on such topics as trade, shipping, merchants, and commodities, with regard to the region's common past. It contains descriptions of materials kept in several repositories in Russia. It focuses on those documents that pertain to the Baltic Sea region, listing their contents, period, countries involved and languages used. This chapter gives information on accessibility, custodial history, record creator, visually attractive documents, copies, related archival materials and publications. The descriptions are arranged alphabetically, first per country, then per location of the repository (place name), the repository itself, and the record group (always on the English names).

Keywords: Baltic sea; central state historical archives; commodities; custodial history; merchant; record creator; repository; Russia; St. Petersburg
