FamilySearch Record Search This article describes a collection of historical records available at FamilySearch.org.

Title in the Language of the Record

Image Visibility

Whenever possible, FamilySearch makes images available for all users. However, ultimate rights to view images on our website are granted by the record custodians. The Russia, Lutheran Church Book Duplicates collection is limited available only to members of the supporting organization, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.The images can be viewed at a FamilySearch Center near you.

Record Description

The records consist of bound volumes with entries on two facing pages for births and baptisms and for burials and deaths. Marriages are on a single page. The images were scanned from microfilm copies of the originals, which are housed in the Russian State Historical Archive, St. Petersburg.

For a list of records by localities currently published in this collection, select the Browse.

This collection covers the early duplicates, 1833–1885. The text of the records is in Russian. The later material is located in the Central State Historical Archive, St. Petersburg.

The Lutheran Diocese of St. Petersburg was created in 1833. It covered mostly ethnic German congregations but included Swedes and others of the Lutheran religion. Each year a duplicate record was sent to St. Petersburg and kept in the Consistory Court. The local St. Petersburg parishes were more cosmopolitan so more ethnic groups can be found there. In some regions such as Kiev and Podolia, French and Russian nobility, in particular those with military connections, register with the Lutherans.

The books pertain to the German Lutheran population along the northwestern, western, and southern edges of the Russian Empire, primarily in the historical provinces of Sankt-Peterburg (Ingria), Volhynia, Bessarabia, and Novorossiysk.

Alaska, which was part of Russia until 1867, is also included.

The duplicate served as the civil vital record when there was no civil registration system conducted by the government.

This is the most reliable record for birth, baptism, marriage, death, and burial dates.

The Russia, Lutheran Church Book Duplicates (FamilySearch Historical Records) Coverage Table shows the places and time periods covered in the indexed records for this collection.

Searching by index:
To search the collection by name, fill in your ancestor’s information in the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about those in the list to what you already know about your own ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person.

⇒Select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page
⇒Select the appropriate "Province"

⇒Select the appropriate "Town"
⇒Select the appropriate "Volume year range: event type (volume number)," which takes you to the images.

Search each individual image. Again, you will need to compare the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor.

Be aware that with either search you may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.

As you are searching, it is helpful to know such information as your ancestor’s given name and surname, some identifying information such as residence and age, and family relationships.
