Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm not from the USA, and no similar organisations exist in my country, unfortunately. I would have submitted the documents to the national archives, but it's controlled by the state security apparatus and doesn't give access to the public, in addition to being arcane and outdated in its processes and structures.

Have you thought about contacting the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints with your questions? They are also known as the "Mormons". They have a strong religious interest in preserving genealogical records from all over the world and are behind the familysearch.org website. (They keep all their original documents and filmed records in an enormous nuclear-bomb-proof vault built into a mountain in Utah.) At the very least, they will be happy to accept your family research records into their vast collection. Perhaps their main library in Salt Lake City, Utah can help you.
All the best genealogical luck!
