The value of the index is that after 1917 a considerable part of the clergy and members of their families have died or emigrated, and the rest were forced to conceal their belonging to this class. Church archives were also destroyed, so any documents or family stories about individual members of the pre-revolutionary clergy simply did not survive. In this situation, the obituaries in the «Diocesan Bulletin» is the only source of biographical information about many of the Orthodox clergy from parish priests to local bishops.
