Re: Understanding Vitals #ukraine #records


these records have no records to synagogue at all.  It was a state-appointed official, aka crown rabbi ( ), who was in charge of maintaining vital records.  All vital records from Jewish, Christian-Orthodox, Catholic, Muslim, etc officials were transferred to a newly established civil registration authorities around 1918-1920.  In Odessa that happened in 1919.
The additional dates you see in the records could have been when he requested an official transcript for some purpose, such as a University admission, internal passport, etc.
