Abstract

On July 10, 1926, the First-President of the Lăpușna Court, judge Eugen Ionescu-Dârzeu and the regional manager of the Romanian Archives, L. T. Boga, signed the acceptance protocol for the old archive of the Lăpușna Court, which comprised around 2,345 documents. During the inventorying process, L. T. Boga and the archivists in Kishinev typed several copies of an opis, of which one (copy No. 3)—which I feature here—ended up in the collections of the Romanian Academy Library, probably from the archive of judge E. Ionescu-Dârzeu. Currently, this collection was integrated to Fund 220 within the Kishinev Archives. Following a global appraisal of the documents published from this archive, I may state that around a quarter of them (approximately 500) were edited, mainly by L. T. Boga and by the editors of the collection Moldova în epoca feudalismului. It is the responsibility of present or future researchers to edit integrally or as abstracts, on a theme-based or chronology-based approach, other documents within this collection.

Until the fulfilment of this desideratum, the critical editing of this opis introduces in the scientific circuit around 2,000 documents, as abstracts. This important archival work tool comprises unpublished information about the history of Moldova, mostly of the regions left from the Pruth River, before and after 1812, concerning both the political and social history and the local history, the toponymy or the genealogy.
