records available here are all from the UK. They
focus on the period when Saperias arrived in the
UK from Russia and established themselves in
Leeds, broadly 1870 - 1920. They were collated by

birth and death records were researched at the Family
Records Centre in Myddleton St, London,
where are held index books giving brief details
of births, deaths & marriages in England,
Wales & Scotland from 1800 to the present.
The birth books from 1852 to 1950 contained 107
Saperia births, and another 39 variants such as
Saparie, Saperie and Sapiere, though after 1917
variants were not included. In the death volumes
from 1860 to 1942 there were 44 relevant Saperia
deaths, and another 11 variants. One third of the
entries were infant mortalities. The references
at the end of each entry may be used to order a

charge of £6.50 and a wait of 1 week.

records were viewed at the Public
Records Office in Kew. All the relevant
material is available at this site.
