In the 19th Century Ukraine was divided into Crown Colonies of Austria (Galicia, Bukovina or Subcarpathia), or large Gubernias of Russia (equivalent to North America's States or Provinces) and Uezds (equivalent to our Counties or Regions). By the end of the 2nd World War the Country of Ukraine was made up of Oblasts (equivalent to our States or Provinces) and Raions (equivalent to our Counties or Regions). There are presently 25 Oblasts and a number of Raions in each Oblast.

To communicate by letter with anyone in Ukraine, or to request information on an ancestor from an Archives in Ukraine, one should know the appropriate modern Raion and Oblast of the ancestral village or town and the Russian Gubernia or Austrian Crown Colony.

There are a number of ways to find the proper address of your ancestral home. Look in the book 'Columbia Lippincott Gazetteer of the World,' which would list the longitude and latitude of the location and should also list the Raion and Oblast.

You might also find the village on maps on the internet or in Atlases in your local library.

Be very careful of the spelling of the village, Raion and Oblast. The following are spellings transliterated from the cyrillic Ukrainian. You would need to request information from Ukraine setting out these places in Ukrainian, and this spelling would indicate how the place was spelled in cyrillic. See the transliteration guide at the end of this article to translate back into cyrillic.


The Ukrainian Archival system for family research is made up of:

- the Main Archives in Kiev
- the Central State Historical Archives in Kiev (TsDIA-K), for eastern Ukraine
- the Central State Historical Archives in Lviv (TsDIA-L), for western Ukraine
- the Oblast Archives in the 25 Oblasts
- the Registry of Vital Statistics Archives (Reyestratsiya aktiv Hromadianskoho Stanu (RAHS) - usually the same number in an Oblast as the Raions and usually based in the capital city of the Raion. These are Archives for civil records from the past 75-100 years.

The Main Archival Administration office is located in Kiev, Ukraine. There has been a success story of someone who wrote to the Central State Historical Archives in Kiev, his letter was forwarded by Kiev to the appropriate Oblast address, and he finally received a reply from the Oblast address, but it was a long wait.

There have also been success stories of persons writing to the State Historical Archives in Lviv.
Historians are recommending that you write two letters, one to the appropriate State Historical Archives, for either eastern Ukraine or Western Ukraine, and one to the Oblast Archives. The Lviv address would be for records in Galicia and Transcarpathia/ Subcarpathia, in the Oblasts of Ivano-Frankivsk, Lviv, Chernivtsi, Ternopil and Transcarpathia, and the Kiev address for the remainder of the Oblasts.

The addresses are shown with a year by each; they have changed from time to time but were current in the year indicated. Notice the order of items in an addressed envelope to Ukraine, first the Country, then the City, then the street address and finally the name of the person or office.

The following are the addresses of the Archives of the 25 Oblasts in Ukraine, and the Archive of the City of Kiev. There have not been any success stories of persons writing direct to an Oblast Archives for information, but if you were planning a trip to Ukraine, you might be able to obtain admittance for personal research. Write ahead to request an appointment to do personal research at the Archives.

The first 3 archives should contain material from the former Kingdom of Galicia in Ukraine, and the 4th archive has material from the former Kingdom of Bukovina. The 5th archive address is for the Transcarpathian Oblast in south-west Ukraine.
