Record Description

This collection of a variety of records covers the period between 1918 and 1944.

These records made after the Russian Revolution through the end of World War II includes of taxpayers, citizens, Jews, Germans, and prisoners of war. They include records such as inhabitant records and tax censuses. The text of the records could be written in German, Estonian, or Russian.

The National Archive of Estonia is the center of archival administration in Estonia and a government agency in the domain of the State Chancellery, which includes Estonian Historical Archives, Estonian State Archives, Estonian Film Archives, and 6 regional Archives from: Harju, Lääne, Lääne-Viru, Saare, Tartu and Valga. Records were created at the local level and later archived in the National Archive. 

Each of these records was created for a good reason, most of them to keep a record of the people in that period of time.  

Most of these types of records are used as a secondary source, when records for ancestors cannot be found in civil or church records.
