Central and Eastern European Magnates and Their Archives
compiled by Edward David Luft

The following is a preliminary list of Central and Eastern European magnates and the locations where their archives are located. If you know of additional magnates and archival sources, please write to us so that we can expand the list.

How do you determine which magnates owned the lands which included your ancestral town? The best source for historical Poland is the 15-volume Slownik geograficzny Królestwa polskiego i innych krajów slowianskich [Geographic Dictionary of the Kingdom of Poland and other Slavic lands]. It is available on microfilm through the Family History Library system (microfilm numbers 920957-920971). Libraries with large map or Slavic divisions might also have the dictionary. It is now available on CD-ROM from the Polish Genealogical Society of America (PGSA) and can be order at 
http://www.pgsa.org/store/cart.php?target=product&product_id=266&category_id=58

. Slownik is almost entirely in Polish but does give alternate names in other local languages such as German, Russian, and other languages. You can find a description of the work at the PGSA website, http://www.pgsa.org/towns/slownik_eng.htm. Some of the Slownik entries for towns have been translated into English and are available on the Internet. Two different lists of those towns appear at http://www.polishroots.com/slownik/slownik_index.htm and at http://www.pgsa.org/Towns/townindex.php.

For a useful website in English listing Polish library and archival websites, contact information for each institution described, holdings, hours of operation, and identification at each institution of an archivist or librarian who understands English, see the Electronic Guide to Polish University and Research Libraries, website: http://www.webpages.uidaho.edu/~majanko/ankieta/index.html. Many Polish archives are within or attached to research libraries.

The Polish Academy of Sciences, Ossolinski National Institute Library, Manuscript Division, is located at ulica Szewska 37, 50 139 Wroclaw, Poland. It is a major source for archival holdings on the nobility and often cited in the list below. Its website is http://www.oss.wroc.pl/.

More than one-third of all Polish and Lithuanian families were "gentlemen" (in Polish,"szlachta"), a title granted by the King of Poland, but many lived barely better than their peasants. (More than one-quarter of Hungary was ennobled and lived under similar conditions.) However, a few "magnates" were incredibly wealthy. Many had other titles, but these were granted by other rulers, such as the Holy Roman Emperor [before 1806] or the Tsar of Russia or the Emperor of Austria [after 1806], never by the Polish king. The Kings of Prussia were very reluctant to grant or even confirm titles of nobility. For a discussion of each noble family, see the Herbarz polski [Polish armorial], which lists each Polish family, its history, etc. The abbreviation"h." after some of the names listed below means "herb" [coat of arms], frequently a more important indication of family relationships than the surname. Families with the same coat of arms were usually linked by marriage while some noble families with the same surname might be wholly unrelated and had different coats of arms. In a few cases the listings are for castles in a certain place, since whoever was the warden of the castle kept the archives.

Note 1: More information on the holdings of the Polish National Archives appears in Biernat, Andrzej, and Laszuk, Anna, eds., Archiwa panstwowe w Polsce: przewodnik po zasobach, Warsaw: Wydawnictwo DiG for Centralny Osrodek Informacji Archiwalnej przy Naczelnej Dyrekcji Archiwów Panstwowych, 1998, 539 pp. Library of Congress call number CD1740 .A825 1998 Poland, on reserve in the European Reading Room. Library of Congress call numbers are provided here because virtually all research libraries use the same number or a similar number derived from it. For more information on records on the nobility held by AGAD, the Archives of Older Records in Warsaw, see the English language summary, pp. 293-296, in Zielinska, Teresa, ed., Archiwum Glówne Akt Dawnych w Warszawie: informator o zasobie: opracowanie zbiorowe, Warsaw: Naczelna Dyrekcja Archiwów Panstowowych, Archiwum Glówne Akt Dawnych, 1992, 311 pp. Library of Congress call number CD1743 .A89 1992. The entire English language summary appears on pp. 289-296.

Note 2: Some Hungarian family archives are in Beregovo [Grimstead, Patricia Kennedy. Archives and
Manuscript Repositories, the USSR, Ukraine and Moldova, Book 1. Princeton University Press, 1988, p. 828.] Over 3,000 Hungarian (non-Jewish) family archival holdings are listed in Pataky, Lajosné, editor, Családnévmutató a Magyar Országos Levéltárban orzött családi levéltárak és gyujtemények iratauhozm 1526-1945, Budapest: Muvelodési Minisztérium Levéltári Osztálya Megbízásából Magyar Országos Levéltár, 1981, 164 pp. Series: Levéltári mutatók és jegyzékek, No. 1. Only Vol. I ever appeared. Library of Congress call number CD1189.5.A1 P37 1981. The volume is a list of names of the nobility and others whose archival holdings are in the National Archives of Hungary. Next to each name is the identification of the holding location at the Hungarian National Archives.

The Ritterschaft Archives of the Latvian nobility is in the Central State Historical Archives of Latvia in Riga, while the Ritterschaft Archives of the Estonian nobility is located at the Central State Historical Archives of Estonia in Tartu. Many of the Estonian files and the inventory of them are available on microfilm at the Herder Institute, Marburg, Germany.

For a discussion of some 16th to 18th century castle and land documents in Riga, Latvia; Vilnius, Lithuania; and Minsk, Ukraine see Isaevych, Iaroslav Dmytrovych (Iseviich, Ia. D.), AGrodskie i Zemskie akty-varhreishii istochnik po storii agramyhk osnoshenii v Rechi Pospolitoi v XVI-XVIII v v,"
Ezhegodnik po agrarnoi istorii Vostochnoi Evropy, 1961g, pp. 90-99, Riga, Latvia, 1963.

Because the Russian Empire banned Jews from living within its boundaries, except in the Pale of Settlement, the nobility of Russia is not listed unless they also owned land in the Pale of Settlement or other locations outside Russia proper.

Metrical [vital records] in the form of land cadastral surveys/land census registers for 1785-1788 and 1819-1920 exist in Vienna and in Lviv, as well as other unspecified census records for Galicia, which exist in Lviv, Ukraine.

The Privy State Archives in Berlin-Dahlem lists at large number of estate records by location. See Geheimes Staatsarchiv Preussischer Kulturbesitz,
Übersicht über die Bestände des Geheimen Staatsarchivs in Berlin-Dahlem, Vol. I: Branig, H, Bliss, R., and Bliss, W., Provinzial- und Lokalbehörden, Cologne and Berlin: Grote, 1966. CD1251.B4.

There are a large number of files catalogued by location in the finding aids at the Geheimes Staatsarchiv-Preussischer Kulturbesitz [Privy State Archives of Prussian Culture], Archivstrasse 12/14, D 14195 Berlin, Germany; telephone 011-49 30 839 0100; FAX: 011-49-30-839 0180; E-mail:
gsta.pk@spk-berlin.de. The website is http://www.gsta.spk-berlin.de/framesets/frameset.php and is partially in English. Those holdings dealing with noble families and filed under their family names seldom contain any data other than official reports to the Prussian government, almost never estate records. See XX. Hauptabteilung, Record Group Vz 802 for noble family records by family name and by location.

In Saxony, no Jews could live in any location other than Leipzig or Dresden without the specific permission of the king, which was seldom granted. Those few petitions considered were discussed in council so there is an extensive written record, usually in the Hauptstaatsarchiv Dresden.

The archives of various western German Laender [plural for Land and equivalent to a state in the United States], including Bavaria and Rhineland-Palatinate are systematically publishing histories of noble families from their states. Check under the name of the family for a published history and then check that book for archival sources. The publications are in German.

While no publication has been found in the United States dealing with the Austrian nobility as a group, the Austrian National Archives at its website,
http://www.oesta.gv.at/ebestand/ehh/efr2hh.htm, indicates that it holds a large collection of family archives of some the great Austrian noble families, such as Harrach, Trautmansdorff, Paar, and Hohenwart. These archives are usually divided into two parts, the archives of rule and dominion and the actual family archives. The Austrian National Archives has purposely collected such material to replace losses caused by a fire on 15 July 1927.

At Library of Congress, DK405.W3; and at New York Public Library, Slavic & Baltic Division, *QR 97-9919. Taken from records in archives in Poland and Germany. There was a survey of goods, services, and conditions in the 3 chambers, Poznan, Kalisz, and Warsaw to find out what the Prussians had annexed in each town as a result of the Second Partition of 1793. The questionnaire covers answers for 1793-1794. The 82 questions posed are listed on pp. 1-8. Response 5 provides the name of the lord owning the town or whether the town is owned by the crown, or, alternatively, if there are individual owners of plots in larger towns. The rest of the questionnaire  provides responses from each town administration, arranged by chamber and within each chamber by town, alphabetically. A significant part of the information is financial with respect to each town, but the Jewish population is often provided in answer 30, as is the number of Jewish professionals, such as butchers, furriers, etc., in answer 33. Few Jewish names.

Note: Additional information about Romanian records appear at the end of the main list.
