Record Description

This collection, which contains records for the years 1918-1922, consists of images of civil registers containing births, marriages, and deaths for the city of Samara, acquired from the archive in Samara. The text of the records is in Russian. Civil registers, also called vital records, had just been established in Russian cities at this time, and gaps in registration continued until 1926.

While searching through this collection, it may be helpful to note that some of the letters used in these records were eliminated in the 1918 Russian spelling reform ( Iі, Ѳѳ, Ѣѣ, Ѵѵ).
