Genitive Case

This is used, for the purposes of these records, to show possession. (In English, when we would say "OF the month". So, in the phrase the 1st of January, the Genitive Case would be used for the word "January" because you are saying "OF January". The ending of the word, in this case the month, changes slightly. One need not memorize all of these endings just to read the parish registry books.

of March Martii marca березня bereznia
