4 Jan 1803 Census of the Hutterite village of Radichev, South Russia
Inventory of Odessa Archives, Fund (Collection) 6, Inventory 1, File 98

Extracted by Tim Janzen

This site makes available a census taken on January 4, 1803 of the Hutterite village of Radichev (Raditschewa) which was located northeast of Kiev. I have spelled the names as they appear in the original document. The census was compiled under the direction of Johann Waldner who was the leader of the village at that time. The census lists the names and ages of 205 residents of Radichev. The original document was written in both German and Russian versions and may be found on frames 198 to 208 of File #98 of the microfilm of selected files from Odessa Archives, Fund 6, Inventory 1.

If you have any questions about any of this data feel free to contact me.
