National Archive of Armenia to release Karabakh 1832 census

PanARMENIAN.Net - The National Archive of Armenia has scheduled the release of Karabakh 1832 census for the year 2011.

As the director of the National Archive of Armenia Amatuni Virabyan told a news conference, the edition to be published has been the first ever census, listing all Gregorian Armenians and Muslims residing on the territory of Karabakh.

“The document is a factual demonstration of the true number of Armenians and Persian migrants in Artsakh villages, proving Azeri reports on the absence of native Armenians in Karabakh to be false.

The territory of Karabakh province exceeded that of the current Nagorno Karabakh Republic. Considering that circumstance, the number of Muslims in Karabakh province prevailed. However, Armenians were the majority on the current territory of Karabakh.”

“In 1920s, the archives were redistributed, with parts of documents transferred to Yerevan, Nakhijevan and Baku. It’s a miracle the document was preserved in the National Archive of Armenia,” Virabyan said.
