Shugaevsky Family

Part 3 (A short side trip)

Trofim, Stefan’s Older Brother

In 1833, Trofim was among the “Younger candidates” graduating from Kiev Theological Academy (see list below). He would have been around 25 years old at the time. I haven’t found a later record for him.  If he became a priest there would have been a record of it, but some records (and whole churches) were destroyed by the Soviets. On the list, after his name there is “Chernihiv” in parentheses. It may refer to the Chernihiv Theological Seminary, where he probably received his secondary education.  The Kiev Theological Academy was a higher education Institution (similar to a university – more about this here).

More Shugaevsky (Шугаевский) References from the Internet

Persistence is the key to success in doing this research. I do the same search multiple times and go many pages deep into the results, always looking for links. I research the schools, cities, politics, etc. to help me dig deeper and to understand what I have found.


Besides other references to Stefan from this general time period, I found two other priests: Nikolai Shugaevsky. and a deceased Grigory Shugaevsky who was older – his son was taken into military service in 1797. Also there is an Evdokia Shugaevsky that graduated from Chernihiv Diocesan Women’s School in 1881.
