Vidzeme-Swedish Governor General Chancery

    A request was typically included in these passports addressed to « all those concerned » or « all civilians and military personnel. » It urged them to facilitate the recipient’s journey without delay and to provide assistance and protection if necessary, operating on the principle of laissez-passer. Among the women whose passports are preserved in this collection, some undertook short-term trips, while others emigrated for reasons such as arranged marriages or similar circumstances. Similar documents from this period and region can also be found in the Latvian State Historical Archives Funds LNA_LVVA_F554 (Archives of Dukes of Courland) and LNA_LVVA_F7349 (Vidzeme-Swedish Governor General Chancery).
