Lublin State Archives (Poland)

The State Archive in Lublin was established in the present form in 1918. Already the Archive's beginnings continue the archival traditions of Lublin, which go back to the 16th century, when offices and courts kept systematic archives, where were held documents and municipal registers, sąd grodzki [castle court, iudicium castrensis] records and registers of Crown Tribunal sessions in Lublin, Lublin's sąd ziemski [nobles' district court] registers and chamberlain records.
