Used by many genealogists as a source for the immediate family of Rurik there are no existent portions of this document, the only information that we have about it is from the 18th century Russian historian Vasily Tatishchev who paraphrase portions of the chronicle in his own words which he then published as "History of Russia" / Istoriia Rossiskaia (История Российская).

As there are numerous problems with the historicity of the documents described by Tatishchev rather than presenting his family tree on Geni the profiles of persons known only due to Tatishchev's writings will be parked in this project.
