The aim of this research was to locate archival material relevant to the needs of the mentioned project in the Fond entitled “Valpovačko vlastelinstvo”. Researchers used numerous archival boxes (15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 22, and 27). In those boxes project researchers found valuable material that will be used for the production of scientific articles concerning the history of Slavonian forests in the 18th centuries concerning the Valpovo Manor.
