- We would like to suggest that you first consult books, encyclopedias
and other previously published works for your research topic. If your
research is genealogical in nature, you should gather names, surnames,
places of birth, etc.
- Research work of secondary sources will not only widen your knowledge
about the research topic and historical context, but will also be
a signpost when working with historical sources, i.e. archival documents.
- Archival records are arranged according to institutions, which,
through their functions have created their records. The order in which
the records are arranged depends on the business structure and internal
organization of the institution as well as on the arrangement of official
and business documentation. The records are not arranged in accordance
with topics, so probably everything you need you will not find in
- Because of that archive staff are available
to assist you in the use of finding aids and to help you in locating
archival material for your research topic.
