'''NOTE:''' The records for this collection consist of individual volumes that frequently group smaller communities together into the same bound copy. For example, the records for Novgorod also contains records for Olonets, Vologda, Kostromo, and Jaroslavl'. When you move from image to image, the browse path will change to reflect the community for the record associated with the image, even though you may start from a different locality.

+
This is attributed to a shared digital film, and the final browse points are considered to be wandering breadcrumbs; that is, some final browse points flip back and forth between different localities. Until the problem is resolved, you will have to read each image to verify the proper locality. Please see [[Russia, Lutheran Church Book Duplicates (FamilySearch Historical Records)/Known Issues|known issues]] for more information.

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.
