+
This collection covers the early duplicates, 1833–1885. These records are written in [[Russian Genealogical Word List|Russian]]. The later material is located in the Central State Historical Archive, St. Petersburg.
  
== Collection Time Period  ==
+
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.

What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]

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. These records are written 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.

Portions of these Lutheran records have been extracted and indexed. As with any extraction project, errors are known to exist so care must be used in using these sites.
