THE L’VIV (UKRAINE) ARCHIVE EXPERIENCE: A FIRST-HAND ACCOUNT

Presentation by

Brian J. Lenius


Brian has researched at the L’viv archive over the past 23 years and will present a photographic account of his research, including physical details of the historic archive building and the process of conducting research.

The Central State Historical Archive in L'viv, Ukraine is one of the most important archives for Galicia (Poland and Ukraine). It is also one of the oldest and largest archives in Europe, having been transformed from the Bernardine Monastery to a state archive by the Austrian Emperor in 1784. It houses over 1 million files stored on 13 kilometres of shelving.
