Administrative Structure of the Parishes of the Przasnysz Powiat

As part of my research project in Salt Lake City during the NGS Family History Conference, I examined microfilms from the Przasnysz Powiat, Płock Gubernia, Vistula Land, Russian Empire (1867-1915) to learn the administrative structure in which the parishes operated during the years 1807-1867.

The Family History Library has microfilm copies of at least some of the records of thirteen parishes in the Przasnysz Powiat: Baranowo, Bogate, Brodow Łaki, Chorzele, Czernice, Duczymin, Dziergowo, Krzynowłoga Mała, Krzynowłoga Wielka, Pawłowo, Przasnysz, Węgra, and Zaręby.

All these parishes (and thier associated villages) belonged to the following administrative divisions:

  • 1807-1815:  Village, Przasnysz Powiat, Płock Department, Duchy of Warsaw
  • 1815-1816:  Village, Przasnysz Powiat, Płock Department, Congress Kingdom of Poland
  • 1816-1837:  Village, Przasnysz Obwód, Płock Voivodeship, Congress Kingdom of Poland
  • 1837-1842:  Village, Przasnysz Obwód, Płock Gubernia, Congress Kingdom of Poland
  • 1842-1844:  Village, Przasnysz Powiat, Płock Gubernia, Congress Kingdom of Poland
  • 1844-1866:  Village, Przasnysz Powiat, Warsaw Gubernia, Congress Kingdom of Poland
  • 1867-1915:  Village, Przasnysz Powiat, Płock Gubernia, Vistula Land, Russian Empire
  • 1815-1918:  Village, Przasnysz Powiat, Płock Gubernia, Regency Kingdom of Poland

For reasons I don’t understand, the records for Baranowo state that the parish was in the Pułtusk Powiat up through 1810, but changed to the Przasnysz Powiat in late 1810. According to the maps, however, Baranowo should have been in the Przasnysz Powiat all along.
