Identity Files


File for Stanislav Stanislavov Bogdan, No. 1208, 1891.
Although Library and Archives is not the repository for passports, the Li-Ra-Ma files may include Polish, Lithuanian and Belorussian passports. Most applicants acquired these documents from local authorities to leave eastern Europe. In Canada, they exchanged them for identity papers confirming their Russian citizenship.
