Administrative Structure of the Parishes of the Maków Powiat

As part of my research project in Salt Lake City during the NGS Family History Conference, I examined microfilms from the Maków Powiat, Łomża 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 ten parishes in the Maków Powiat: Czerwonka, Gąsewo, Karniewo, Krasnosielc, Maków Mazowiecki, Płoniawy, Póżan, Sieluń-Majorat, Szelków, and Szwelice.

The microfilmed records in the Family History Library do not indicate the administrative divisions to which the parishes of Czerwonka, Płoniawy, Sieluń-Majorat, and Różan belonged, but their positions on the map suggest that all of these parishes belonged to the Pułtusk Powiat (Obwód). The records of the parish of Płoniawy began in 1929. Prior to that, the parish was located in Podoś.

The parishes of Czerwonka, Gąsewo, Karniewo, Maków Mazowiecki, Płoniawy (Podoś), Póżan, Sieluń-Majorat, Szelków, and Szwelice (and their associated villages) belonged to the following administrative divisions:

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

The parish of Krasnosielc (and its 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
1844-1867:  Village, Przasnysz Powiat, Augustów Gubernia, Congress Kingdom of Poland
1867-1915:  Village, Maków Powiat, Łomża Gubernia, Vistula Land, Russian Empire
1915-1918:  Village, Maków Powiat, Łomża Gubernia, Regency Kingdom of Poland

    I am doing research on two families which came from Makowe (Pultusk) about 1865. I am seeking a map of where Makowe was at that time.

    Thank you,

    Jean Roseman

    Jean, I can’t find any place named Makowe but, in 1865, the town of Maków (now Maków Mazowiecki) was in the Pułtusk Powiat. You can find this place on any map of Poland, including the map at http://pgsa.org/images/Atlas/43.Makowski.jpg from 1907.

    I am looking for family in the Maków Mazowiecki area. I believe the name is Kęszczyk and was changed in America to Kenczyk as I now use it. Any help would be appreciated.
