In 1992, the Central State Archive of Early Acts (TsGADA SSSR) was renamed Russian State Archive of Early Acts (RGADA). RGADA retains documents dating from the eleventh through the beginning of the twentieth century, consisting of the records of central and regional agencies of the Russian Empire and its precedessor states up to the time of the administrative reforms of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries (with the exception of the records of the Admiralty, Foreign, and Military Collegiia). RGADA also holds the fonds of central land-survey agencies of Russia from the eighteenth through the early twentieth centuries; records of monasteries and other religious institutions; personal papers of state and public figures, men of science and art; archives of major landowners and gentry families; collections of historical documents and manuscript books; and collections of Russian and foreign incunabula, early printed and rare books dating from the fifteenth through the nineteenth centuries.
