The 1739 Armenian population register from Stanisławów
The aim of the author is to present the 1739 population register of Armenians from Stanisławów and to determine the number of Armenians living in the city in the 18th century. His archive research comprised court records from Stanisławów as well as birth, marriage and death registers of the Armenian Catholic parish in Stanisławów.
In the 18th century the number of Armenians living in Stanisławów was at least 200 and never went above 400. According to the 1739 population register, the Armenians owned 65 houses. The Armenian population register from Stanisławów is important for demographic and genealogical studies, because there are very few sources produced by the administration in the south-eastern part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth before its first partition.
The number of Armenians living in Stanisławów (200–400) was substantial in comparison with the total number of Armenians living in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (3000–4000).
