Chapter Summary

The Department of History at the University of Tartu has for a long time been one of the most outstanding and highly qualified centres for research in church history in Estonia. In 2000 the Estonian National Archives financed an expedition to the Tomsk archives, the aim of which was to carry out preliminary research, and if possible, to also copy archive material on Estonian history. The church of St. Mary's at Tomsk was built in the years 1859-1862. The congregation belonged to the district of the Moscow Consistory. In the 1880s-1890s the pastors served in Tomsk and Barnaul most of the time. By their nature, the entries of the Tomsk congregation registers differ considerably from those of the Baltic ones. Many Estonians' surnames were of the German type. The congregation registers contain ample information about the life of the Estonians in Siberia.
