For the purposes of this thesis, an analysis of a number of volumes of three different journals in the field of archival science; one from Croatia, Canada and the United States of America, was done, to determine the frequency of articles on genealogy and the share of these articles in the total sum of articles in a particular journal. Statistical data on the use of archival material by users of the Croatian State Archives gave an insight into the importance of genealogical research for the creation of archival policy. In addition, the paper describes genealogical research and its sources, which are available to researchers in archives and on the web. The tools and resources offered by Croatian State Archives and other network pages are also described, with special attention given to the FamilySearch web site. The thesis also presents a brief description of the historical beginning of genealogy research in Croatia and Europe.
