The author discusses the contributions of Rosalie Ottesson, a Siberian correspondent of the Estonian Folklore Archives, proceeding from the time of collecting and the practices of collecting work supervision at the time. R. Ottesson came from a traditional village community. As an active woman she held several positions during her working life: she was a schoolteacher, a clerk in the village soviet, worked in the District Committee of the Communist Party, etc. Rosalie Ottesson started making contributions to the archives after her retirement, having met Igor Tõnurist, who visited the Estonian settlements in the Minusinsky District of Krasnoyarsk Krai. The article discusses Ottesson’s recordings proceeding from the impacts of the Soviet period – its social and political circumstances – on collecting. The collected material makes it possible to observe what it was that Ottesson herself considered worth preserving, and also to notice how her personal background (origin, positions) influenced the lore. In addition, the letters sent to the correspondent from the museum make it possible to analyse the collecting strategies of the Department of Folkloristics at the time, as well as the researchers’ approaches inspired by their research interests.
