Family rolls

The Association sustains its historic roots through administration of the four aristocratic corporative (Livonia, Estonia, Courland and Oesel) and individual family rolls (Matrikel der Einzelritterschaften und der Geschlechtsregister). This work remains vital as only family members on these rolls may join the Association. Family ties and reunions are further encouraged in several ways including through publications relating to aristocratic Baltic families in the Geneological Handbook of Nobility (Geneologisches Handbuch des Adels). In addition, the Association supports research into the general history of the Baltic area, its nobility, and individual noble families.
