Rozyszcze Project Update
As of May 2020, the Volhynia-Kiev-Podolia (VKP) databases list more than 160,000 birth, confirmation, marriage, and death events which include clickable links to online scans of the records. The data is extracted from Volhynia parish register books held by Archiwum Główne Akt Dawnych (AGAD) in Warsaw. More than 90% of the data is from Rozyszcze Lutheran parish with the rest from Wladimir-Wolynsk and Lutzk parishes plus 10 kantorates near Rowno and Tutschin. The dates completed so far extend from 1862 to 1935. This is an ongoing project with the goal to extract all available records, some of which go to as late as 1937. To initiate a search, go to the public databases page.
