Knowledge and skills

The primary field of his research is the nobility in Slovenian territory and in the former Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, a subject largely disregarded and even disparaged in the past. He has established contacts with numerous members of the former nobility who allow him access to their private family archives (the Auerspergs, the Lichtenbergs, the Herbersteins, the Thurns, etc.) and thus render his research possible, with this kind of archival materials being inaccessible to the general public.

The second field of his interest are so-called auxiliary historical sciences, such as genealogy, heraldry and diplomatic. Within this sphere he prepares editions of medieval charters and modern times documents.

He regularly makes his research in Slovenian and foreign archives (especially in Vienna, Graz and Klagenfurt), which are the only source of new information, especially in the field of older history.
