Re: Russian Passports #russia

Several people have now mentioned that they have copies of Russian Empire passports but no one has said anything about how they might have been acquired. Surely even if they were just simple pieces of paper with lots of stamps on them, someone was in charge of that stamping and presumable had to keep records of their use. Why then do their not seem to be any records of who these people were and what you had to do to get those pieces of paper?
