  • Ottoman population registers functioned in the role of civil registration 1831-1913 when Macedonia became part of Serbia.
  • Males were counted before 1881 but everyone thereafter noting sex; birth date; residence; age; religion; craft or occupation; marital status, marriage date; health; military status. Some registers may be located in state and provincial archives, while most are probably at the Ottoman Archives in Istanbul, Turkey.
  • There was no modern civil registration until the communist takeover in 1946.
