This collection of church records for the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (as well as smaller segments for the Armenian and Roman Catholic Church) covers the years 1600-1937.

Record Description

This collection of church records for the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (as well as smaller segments for the Armenian and Roman Catholic Church) covers the years 1600-1937.

This collection includes indexes of baptisms and images of baptisms, marriages, and deaths for Catholics living in the parishes of Eastern Galicia (Galizien), a province of the Austrian Empire, now located in western Ukraine. The records are duplicates created by priests for the civil authorities. Austrian place names are used in the browse because the records pre-date the period when the area belonged to Ukraine.

The Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church is the largest Eastern Catholic Church of its own law. The name Greek Catholic Church was introduced by Empress Maria Theresa in 1774 in order to distinguish it from the Roman Catholic and Armenian Catholic Churches.

Church registers were created by authorized church priests in order to record important events, such as baptisms, marriages, and deaths or burials in the life of its members.

For a list of records by religion, document type, and dates currently published in this collection, select the Browse link from the collection landing page.

  • Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the bride and groom who may have married in the same county or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family or even the second marriage of a parent. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.
  • Use the marriage number to identify previous marriages.
  • When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
