The article is focused on the history of the well- known merchant family of Tretyakovs; it is shown that confession lists provide unique information about religious activities of the Moscow merchants, their places of living, links to a particular parish, the inhabitants of a household etc. The limitations of the use of confession lists as a source for the history of merchants are also demonstrated. The author concludes that the analysis of confession lists enables one to find new information on several generations of the Moscow merchants.
