Finding Aids

Most important is the currently out of print, 135 pp., paperbound Preliminary Survey of the Documents in the Archives of the Russian Orthodox Church in Alaska (Boulder, Colorado: Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, 1974) by Barbara Sweetland Smith.


Note: Parish records in the archive are on 11 reels of microfilm, available for loan or purchase. Plans are to develop a complete microfilm set of the Russian Orthodox American Messenger from the Alaska Archive, the Library of Congress materials, and holdings at the University of California at Berkeley and elsewhere. A contemplated second edition of the Preliminary Survey would serve as a guide to all of this material also (including a list of Messenger articles on Alaska).

Restriction: All original materials are closed to researchers; microfilm available (see above).
