About RGIA DV
RGIA DV was founded as a separate central state archive in 1943
in Tomsk to retain records from institutions in the Khabarovsk and Primor'e Krai and in
Amur, Kamchatka, Sakhalin, and Chita Oblasts, predominantly covering the period from the
mid-nineteenth century through 1940.
Since the opening of Vladivostok to visitors in 1991, the archive
has been transferring its holdings from its earlier location in Tomsk.
Most of the records held by the archive have been declassified.
However, in connection with the post-1991 transfer of the archive from Tomsk to
Vladivostok, some of the holdings are still in a transitory state and cannot readily be
made available to researchers. Researchers should make advance inquiries to determine
available holdings and request specific materials needed.
