Annotation The article describes various aspects of the history of the creation and operation of civil registry offices in the Soviet era on the example of the Khabarovsk region. A periodization of their history is proposed. It is noted that, despite the presence of a certain number of scientific publications of a generalizing nature on the history of civil registry offices, as well as works that consider any individual aspects of this history, today, there are no considered components. This is the regional specificity of the activities of civil registry offices. This determines the relevance of the stated research topic. The author describes the history of creation and development of civil registration bodies in the Khabarovsk region against the background of their history in the Far East as a whole, taking into account national trends. For different stages of historical development of civil registry offices, the specifics of their activities are highlighted. At different periods, the functions of the civil registry offices were different. In Soviet times, these institutions actively participated in public-state relations. This includes taking into account the natural movement of the population, providing state support for large families, forming the Soviet principles of family and marriage relations, etc. During the perestroika period, there was a transformation of the management system of civil registry offices and the order of office work; elements of self-financing and new technologies were introduced. Analysis of regional features of civil registry offices on the example of the Khabarovsk region and the impact of reforms on the quality of services in this area in the period from 1917 to 2020 allow us to identify the special role of civil registry offices, firstly, in interaction with authorities at all levels, and secondly, in relations between the state and society.
Key words civil registry office services, acts of civil status, accounting of natural population movement, state support for large families, information technology
