Vast holdings of church records for Ukraine are preserved in archives today.  The church records are primarily from 1721 to 1917.  Contrary to popular belief, church records were not systematically destroyed in the former Soviet Union, but they were centralized and preserved in government archives.


Many Christian churches existed in Ukraine for which records exist today, including Russian Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Greek Catholic (Uniate), Lutheran, Mennonite, and some others.  (For information about non-Christian records in Ukraine see Ukraine Jewish Records and Ukraine Muslim Records.)


Church records for many areas have been microfilmed by FamilySearch and some have been digitized.
