Mortality peculiar properties of the Josefstal's colonists were considered on the base of parish registers data at the article. The critic of sources was provided and their potential was analyzed. The time and character of the epidemic outbreaks were measured. The mortality rate from the different types of diseases was compared. Author fixed some changes of seasonality in mortality peaks and declines between XIX and the beginning of XX. The research results attested that mortality rate at the colony was lower than at the regional center – Ekaterinoslav. So, birthrate was higher and mortality rate – lower than city, but higher birthrate Josefstal opposed to Gammalsvenskby and Ekaterinoslav opposed to Cherson pointed on the regional differences of birthrate. There were no such differences among the mortality rates, but they were found among cities and country. The mortality rate was 28 % at the both cities and 25 % at the colonies at the second half of the XIX. Some peculiar properties were found at the mortality parceling among sex and age groups.
