Cherkasskii family archives includes diaries, correspondence, writings, genealogy, books, clippings, printed matter, and photographs, relating to social conditions in Russia before the Russian Revolution, the Russian imperial army, the Russian Revolution and Civil War, Russian émigré affairs, and the Russian Orthodox Church abroad.
The Cherkasskii family was prominent in the Russian government and the army from about 1500 until the very end of the seventeenth century. They were also the single richest boyar clan in Russia. From the end of the sixteenth century to Peter's time, they were the most important group of aristocrats of foreign origin at the court of the Russian tsars.
