This territory then became part of the Novorossiĭskai︠a︡ gubernii︠a︡ which in 1802 was divided into three Guberniya--Ekaterinoslavskai︠a︡, Nikolaevskai︠a︡, and Tavricheskai︠a︡. By 1842 the Tavricheskai︠a︡ gubernii︠a︡ also included the Aleksandrovskiĭ, Berdi︠a︡nskiĭ, and Melitopolʹskiĭ uezd, which on 06-08-1920 formed the Aleksandrovskai︠a︡ gubernii︠a︡ [no publs, in LC data base].

During the administrative reforms of 1922-1925 on the lands of the former Zaporizʹka gubernii︠a︡ were established the Zaporizʹkyĭ, Melitopolʹsʹkyĭ, and Berdi︠a︡nsʹkyĭ okruh [no publs. in LC data base] which then formed the basis of the modern Zaporizʹka oblastʹ)
