Creator(s)Glamorgan Record Office
BackgroundIn 1990 and 1992, Susan Edwards, Senior Assistant Archivist at the Glamorgan Record Office, made research visits to the Ukraine. In September 1990, she accompanied a group of descendents of the Hughes and other Hughesovka families, who had arranged a visit to Donetsk. Here, she took part in some of their activities and also carried out research in Donetsk state Archives and Donetsk Museum. In Spring 1992, with the award of a Churchill Travelling Fellowship, Susan was able to travel to Russia and the Ukraine for further research. This time, she joined the Cardiff-Lugansk Association exchange group visit for the first part of her journey as far as Moscow, then travelled to Donetsk. Here she delivered 24 exhibition boards – a Russian-language version of the Hughesovka exhibition which the Record Office had developed jointly with the Welsh Industrial and Maritime Museum in 1991. She then travelled to St Petersburg, where she carried out research into the New Russia Company in the Central State Historical Archive. In October 1992, a return visit was made to Wales and the UK by Lyudmilla Aleksieva Vassilieva, head of the ethnographic section of Donetsk Mueum, and Nadezhda Borisova Metalnikova, Director of the State Archives.
