Administrative Structure of the Parishes of the Pułtusk Powiat

As part of my research project in Salt Lake City during the NGS Family History Conference, I examined microfilms from the Pułtusk Powiat, Warsaw 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 sixteen parishes in the Pułtusk Powiat: Dzierżenin, Gąsiorowo, Gzy, Klukowo, Nasielsk, Obryte, Pniewo, Pokrzywnica, Przewodowo, Pułtusk, Smogarzewo, Szyszki, Winnica, Zambski, Zatory, and Żeromin.

While in Salt Lake City, I did not have time to examine the records of the Obryte, Pniewo, Pokrzywnica, Przewodowo, Pułtusk, Smogarzewo, Winnica, Zatory, or Żeromin parishes, but their positions on the map suggest that all of these parishes belonged to the Pułtusk Powiat (Obwód).

All sixteen parishes (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
1867-1893:  Village, Pułtusk Powiat, Łomża Gubernia, Vistula Land, Russian Empire
1893-1915:  Village, Pułtusk Powiat, Warsaw Gubernia, Vistula Land, Russian Empire
1915-1918:  Village, Pułtusk Powiat, Warsaw Gubernia, Regency Kingdom of Poland
