I am researching the last name Toransky (Toranskiy, ?????????) in general, and Peter (Petr) Toransky in particular. From what information I have gathered, he was a Russian Orthodox priest. He first lived in Gineevka, Zmiev County, and moved in 1889 to Church of the Resurrection in Khoroshevo, Kharhov County. I am assuming while he was in Gineevka, his two sons (that I am aware of), Nicholas and Alexander (~1884), were born. I am looking for their birth/baptism records.
Now, I don't have the first clue about how to go about doing family genealogy in Ukraine, especially since I don't understand Ukrainian or Russian. Any information would be helpful!
