Record Description

This collection includes the years 1840-1845.

The Church acted as both a religious and civil agent in recording vital events and church sacraments such as baptism and burial. Peter the Great mandated the keeping of Russian Orthodox books in 1722. The format was standardized in 1724. Printed forms were introduced in 1806. In 1838 a format was introduced that prevailed until the 1930s. The priests made a transcript for the ecclesiastical court (dukhovnaia konsistoriia) having jurisdiction over the parish. This is usually the version that has been preserved. The register covers 70% for early periods, 90% after 1800. The registers are in Russian.

The orthodox parishes of the Kyyiv (Kiev) Consistory covers the area now in the districts (oblasts) of Kyyiv, Zhytomyr, Vinnytsya, and Cherkasy.

Church registers were kept by parish priests in order to record births/baptisms, marriages, and deaths/burials.

These were considered an official record and are normally very reliable. Earlier registers may not be equally reliable. In 1825 the Holy Synod, governmental body over the Orthodox Church, ordered bishops to eradicate bribery of priests to falsify the books, suggesting that this problem existed.

The collection consists of an index entries of baptisms/births, marriages, and burials/deaths for Orthodox parishes in Diocese of Kiev. The records are duplicates created by priests for civil authorities. The records are preserved in the Central Historical Archive of Ukraine in Kyiv. The place names reflect the jurisdiction when the records were created.
