Hamburg State Archive (Staatsarchiv Hamburg) (Germany)

The records held at Hamburg State Archive (Staatsarchiv Hamburg) are given to us by the administration of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. To maintain the coherence of the documents, the records are organised into collections (Bestände) according to the authorities, public offices and courts where they were created. These collections are showing the tasks and responsibilities of the administration in the past and in the present.
