Merchants from Iaşi and Their Trade with Transylvania
in Documents between the 17th - 18th Centuries


Marius CHELCU

Abstract:
Our research we use information from published documents, most of them found usesin the series Documents on the history of Iasi, to which were added a few unedited documentary sources from the Archives in Iasi and the Academy Library in Bucharest. Even though our investigation begins in the second half of the 17th century, due to the amount of information available, we focused more on the 18th century. Moreover, the increase in information regarding these 18th century dealers cannot be explained only by the increase of the number of acts written and stored, but also it is a reason upon the balance of Moldova's trade with Central Europe. In that context, in Iasi, we can find several families of merchants specialised in trading goods brought from Transylvania, especially from Brasov.
