A specific particularity within the German business archives landscape is the regional economic archives. The legislation of the German counties charges them with the sovereign responsibility for safeguarding the history of the local chambers of commerce. Moreover, they assume the role of a safe haven for many private economic archives. Only a trustful relationship in between the company owners and the regional economic archives makes it possible to ensure the survival of these invaluable sources by transferring them to the public domain and thus making them available to research.

Keywords:   German business archives, regional economic archives, chambers of commerce
