This fonds was originally kept in the creator's record office. It was subsequently transferred to the State Regional Archives in Zámrsk and, in 1992, moved to the State District Archives in Trutnov. In 2011, it was transferred to the Provincial Archives in Opava, which led to a reduction in the amount of archival material in the fonds.
