Biographical History

In 1848, the Blatná District Governor's Office was established within the competence of the Regional Office in Písek and included the Blatná judicial district and, since 1868, the Březnice judicial district. The Blatná District Office was established as a mixed district office in 1855 and dealt with the political and judicial agendas. In 1868, the Blatná District Governor's Office was restored. In 1919, it was renamed the District Political Administration Blatná and in 1928 the District Office Blatná. Its competence lasted until 1942, when it was abolished by the Ministry of the Interior, and its municipalities were incorporated into the district of the Strakonice District Office.

Archival History

Originally, the fonds was probably stored in the building of the Blatná District Office, and in 1953 it was handed over to the State Regional Archives in Pilsen. The roughly organized fonds was handed over to the Strakonice District Archives in 1959. The census sheets of 1921 were handed over as late as 1998. In 2008, the entire fonds was processed and inventoried. However, due to an unsatisfactory archival finding aid, it was again included in the unprocessed materials and the finding aid was canceled.

Scope and Content

The fonds contains documents of the regional political state administration and the judicial administration, dealing with the economic, political, social and cultural conditions of the former judicial district of Blatná and Březnice.
