The fonds’ documents were taken over in 1964 by the State Regional Archives in Brno (today the Moravian Provincial Archives), where they were also arranged. Later they were transferred to the State District Archives in Znojmo.

Scope and Content

The significance of this fonds is only supplemental. From relevant sources, it contains only inheritance files from 1938–1943 and/or guardianship and custodial files from 1939–1943. Persons of Jewish origin will apparently be recorded in these materials only in exceptional cases.

System of Arrangement

The structure of the fonds respects a change in the file service in 1941 and is divided into two parts: before and after that date. Within these groups the documents are structured by subject groups: a) 1938: Files (inheritance records, guardianship and custodial records, disputes, misdemeanours, criminal matters); b) 1941–1943: Assisting books, Files (inheritance files, guardianship and custodial files, disputes, misdemeanours, criminal matters).
