Webmaster's Acknowledgements: This database is based on a document prepared in 1998 by Sonja Mirzoyan, director of the State Historical Archive of Armenia at Yeravan, Armenia and then presented to the FHL and also FEEFHS for posting on the web. I thank Sonja Mirzoyan for her excellent work in compling this database in Armenian and Russian.

I also thank Kahlile Mehr, A.G., of the FHL Acquisitions staff at Salt Lake City, Utah, USA for his excellent work in translating Sonya's database into English from the Armenian and Russian cyrillic languages. I also thank the Quorum of 12 (part of the LDS Church senior leadership) for Their approval of the publication of this Armenian database on the FEEFHS Website.

Background This is a compilation of the names for Armenian parishes in the territory of modern Armenia, Georgia, and Azerbaijan for which records of baptism, marriage, and burial have been preserved in the State Historical Archives of Armenia (at Yeravan, Armenia's capitol city). The work was the result of a cooperative effort between that Archives and the LDS Family History Library (FHL) of Salt Lake City, Utah.

Please be sure to visit the Family History Library (FHL) website at at http://www.familysearch.org where additional genealogy assistance is available.

Special Acknowledgment: Special mention should be made of Sonya Mirzoyan, Director of the Archive, and her countless hours of effort to identify the parishes represented in each parish register and to assure the quality of this index.

Contents of this Armenian Parish Index: This index consists of three parts:
1) Alphabetical listing by historical name as transliterated from the Armenian version of the name. [See List 1) Below] This often varies from the transliteration from the Russian version of the name.
2) Alphabetical listing by modern name from the Russian version of the name. [See List 2) Below] Many place names were changed during the Soviet period. Consequently, the two lists are substantially different. Both of these alphabetical lists identify the archival reference numbers of fond / series / item.
3) Cross Reference (archival reference numbers to the FHL film numbers) of the Family History Library.

Status and Availability: The material in these index lists has all been filmed by the Family History Library. It is available at: Future Additions: It is anticipated that inclusive dates will be added to these indexes in the future.

Other Armenian Parish Microfilms: More Armenian material has been acquired by the FHL from Georgian archives but a similar index for this material has not yet been created. Also, Armenian parishes from throughout Russia, Ukraine, and Moldova were filmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah but are not included in this index. All of these materials can be found in the catalog of the Family History Library (the FHLC) at http://www.familysearch.org (or on CDROM or fiche at a FHC) along with other genealogical sources for these areas.
