Russian Orthodox Greek Catholic Church of America. Diocese of Alaska records, 1843-1932.
This microfilm collection consists primarily of records of the Kvikhpak (Yukon) Mission including churches or chapels at Russian Mission, Mikhailovskii Redoubt, Kolmakovskii Redoubt, as well as St. Sergius Church, both of the latter located on the Kuskokwim River. Small groups of records are included from the Church of the Holy Ascension (Unalaska), Holy Resurrection Church (Kodiak), and St. George Church (St. George Island). Among the various records in the collection are priests' journals, journals of church worship services, church registers, school journals, metrical and confessional records, financial records and correspondence. These records document the life and activities of the respective churches and chapels and serve as a microcosm for the study of the impact on, and relationship between, the church and the Alaskan Natives.
