E.K. Salakhova

86-95 p.



The article analyzes Muslim birth records in Astrakhan. The sources characterize the daily life of the Tatar community in the city from the second half of the nineteenth through the beginning of the twentieth centuries. They contain information on the history of the formation and ethnic processes among Astrakhan Tatars. Parish registers associated with this group of Tatars to date have not been subjected to special analysis. The problems discussed in this article are the first step in this direction.
