Grateful for any help you can give

Joan Jacobson
 

I wonder if you can help direct me to the right location to forward an e-mail that I wrote as a result of viewing the interesting Ukraine information you posted a few days ago which included individuals’ cemetery locations bu surname.  It bounced back when I directed it to the rootsweb site.
Thanks so much.
Joan Jacobson.
I live in the United States
My e-mail address is:  sojacobs@...
I am hoping to discover information about my maternal great-granparents who lived In the town of Chernigov.  Last name was Naischuler (or Neishuler or Nayshuler) I have found the names in an index of cemeteries in the area.  They are listed as #114, #269, #258 #74, respectively.  All are in Soundex N246, DM Code 648900.
My grandmother, Etlya (Etil) Naischuler( born 1883),emigrated with my father, Leiwe and his brother, Moishe in 1906 and settled in Chicago.

Also, Etlya, left behind her husband, Aron Nikrityn (Nekrytiy),born 1878.  I have no information at all about him and his parents.  I was told he and Etla were divorced and no one ever wanted to talk about him.  I would love to know what happened to him.  He was also from the town of Chernigov.
Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Fw: Progress Report on Chernigov Tax Census project

Tom E
 

Thank you, Beth, for your work and spearheading of this Chernigov tax census project.


From: Beth Galleto <galleto@...>

Subject: Progress Report on Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project
 

Dear fellow researchers,

I am delighted to send you this progress report on the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project as of the end of 2021.

The project has now completed translations of 2,476 pages in the original books of family lists (also called tax censuses) from the area of the former Chernigov gubernia. Each page may include data on three or four families. Those translated so far are from the Glukhov, Starodub, Konotop, Mglin, Oster, and Borzna uezds (districts) in 1882 and from the Krolevets, Surazh, Novgorod-Seversk, Chernigov, and Gorodnia uezds in 1888. Families were recorded as residents of small towns and villages within these districts.

The original books containing these family lists/tax censuses were microfilmed and then digitized by the LDS church, and images of the pages can be seen online on the FamilySearch website. So far we have completed translations of these lists from LDS films numbered 1222346 and 1222347 and have started on film 1409779.

In addition to the above results, our wonderful translator has recently sent me the spreadsheet of information from the Sosnitsa uezd in 1888. I am currently proofreading this spreadsheet, and it will be ready for viewing soon. Coming next on film 1409779 will be the Konotop, Borzna, Kozelets, and Glukhov uezds in 1888.

I have made alphabetized lists of the surnames found in each of the lists translated so far. Please email me if you want to check any of these alphabetized lists.

The data from all but the most recent translations has been uploaded to the JewishGen website, where you can search for your names through the JewishGen Unified Search. Just enter your surname in the blank and hit “search”. On the page of results, scroll down to where it says “Ukraine Revision Lists” and click on the box showing the number of results on the right side of the page. Though the family lists/tax censuses are not revision lists, the information within them is similar and they are grouped in the same category. You will find any results that have been uploaded from the family lists so far, and you may find some results from actual revision lists as well.

If you know the name of the town or shtetl within the Chernigov gubernia from which your family came, you can also do a search for data from that town. You will get best results if you search for the town name under “Any Field” rather than under “Town”. This will give you notations not only of people who lived in the town, but also of those who were registered there but lived elsewhere or for whom the town was mentioned in added notes for any reason.

Donations are needed to continue this work. You can see a project synopsis and also make a donation on the JewishGen website through the following link:

https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=22.

Such donations are tax deductible in the U.S. Data from all the spreadsheets translated will ultimately be posted on the JewishGen website. Donors of $100 or more are eligible to view the spreadsheets before the data is posted online. Thank you to all who have donated to the project so far.

Wishing a good 2022 and successful genealogical searching to all.

Chernigov Document Translation Project adds family lists from Oster 1888 #translation #ukraine

Beth Galleto
 

Dear fellow researchers,

Tax censuses (family lists) from communities in the Oster uezd (district) in 1888 have now been translated and transcribed as part of the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project.

The Oster lists include 496 numbered families and 2247 individuals. Among these families there are 388 surnames. I have extracted these surnames and attached the list to this email. The original pages can be seen online on the FamilySearch website in FHL film 1222347, item 13. 

Previously as part of this project we have translated tax censuses from six uezds in 1882 and from five uezds in 1888. The original books can be seen in FHL films 1222346 and 1222347.

This work is possible because of generous donations from so many who are interested in records from the former Chernigov gubernia. Those who donate $100 or more to the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project on the JewishGen website are eligible to view the completed spreadsheets before they are uploaded to the website. Please contact me with proof of your donation if you want to see any of the completed spreadsheets. All donations of any size are appreciated and will continue to advance the project. You can donate through the following link: 

https://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=22

The information from most of the previously translated spreadsheets has been uploaded to the JewishGen website. They can be searched by entering your surname in the JewishGen Unified Search. When the results page appears, click on those listed for the heading "Ukraine Revision Lists". (The tax censuses or family lists are not actually revision lists, but they are similar enough to be categorized under this heading.)

Next to be translated will be tax censuses/family lists from the Sosnitsa uezd in 1888. These will complete the second film and begin the third film of the six that make up the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project.

Best wishes,

Beth Galleto,

Dear fellow researchers,

Tax censuses (family lists) from the Chernigov uezd (district) in 1888 have now been translated and transcribed as part of the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project. The Chernigov uezd was one of 15 uezds within the Chernigov gubernia (province).

The lists include 298 numbered families and 1801 individuals. Among these families there are 206 surnames. I extracted the surnames that appear in the translations and have attached the list to this email. The original pages can be seen online on the FamilySearch website in FHL film 1222347, item 12.

Odessa Database has Chernigov residents

Tom E
 

Members,

Chernigov and Odessa are approximately 381 miles apart.  You wouldn't think that people from Chernigov would live in Odessa, do to the distance.  But, I found Chernigov residents in the all Odessa database.  In the "general section", I typed "Chernigov", and the people listed below were from Chernigov and living in Odessa.  To the right of the person's name, you'll click to view the record.  Once in the record, scroll to the very bottom, and you can see the actually document in cyrillic.


I recommend that in the general section, that you type the district and/or town for results: Chernigov, Borzna, Glukhov,  Gorodnya, Konotop, Kozelets, Nezhin, Krolovets, Mglin, Nezhin, Novgorod-Seversk, Novozybkov, Oster, Sosnitsa, Starodub, Surazh, and towns like Berezna, Pochep, etc.

Document Translation Project adds lists from Novgorod Seversk 1888 #ukraine #chernigov

Beth Galleto
 

Dear fellow researchers,

I am happy to announce that tax censuses (family lists) from the Novgorod Seversk uezd (district) in 1888 have now been translated and transcribed as part of the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project. The lists include 409 families composed of 2,582 individuals. Among these families there are 258 surnames, which I have extracted and attached to this email. The original pages can be seen online on the FamilySearch website in FHL film 1222347, item 11. 

Previously as part of this project we have translated tax censuses from the Borzna, Glukhov, Konotop, Mglin, Oster, and Starodub uezds in 1882, and from the Krolevets and Surazh uezds in 1888. The original books can be seen in FHL films 1222346 and 1222347.

This work is possible because of generous donations from so many who are interested in records from the former Chernigov gubernia. Those who donate $100 or more to the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project on the JewishGen website are eligible to view the completed spreadsheets before they are uploaded to the website. Please contact me with proof of your donation if you want to see any of the spreadsheets as listed above. All donations of any size are appreciated and will continue to advance the project. You can donate through the following link: 

https://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=22

Next to be translated on film 1222347 will be tax censuses from the Chernigov uezd, and then the Oster, Gorodnya, and Sosnitsa uezds in 1888.

The information from most of the previously translated spreadsheets has been uploaded to the JewishGen website. They can be searched by entering a surname in the JewishGen Unified Search. When the results page appears, click on those listed as "Ukraine Revision Lists". (The tax censuses are not actually revision lists, but they are similar enough to be categorized under this heading.)

I hope you are getting a lot of online genealogy research done while staying safe.

Best wishes,

Beth Galleto

Miriam Weiner's site & Chernigov

Tom E
 

Hello Members,

If you haven't had the chance to take a look at Miriam Weiner's updated website, www.rtrfoundation.org, I recommend that you do so.  There are 3 areas of her site that I recommend that you look at for Nezhin and other Chernigov records.  Specifically, check out the links:



Archive

Surname

Image

 

As mentioned on JewishGen, by Marilyn Golden, Miriam "created a surname database (searchable via standard search and OCR search) which enables the researcher to access Holocaust name lists, vital records, census lists, school records, property lists, various telephone & business directories, most of which does not appear elsewhere online. Written permission was obtained from archivists, authors and institutions for me to create data files & publish this information.

The data entry is ongoing. 


A town name search can produce: 1: archive data for that town, 2: images of the town, and 3: link to street map of the town.


A surname search can produce 1: document results with that surname, 2: link to a street map, and 3: links to town images. All in a single search"!

Document Translation Project adds lists from Surazh 1888 #translation

Beth Galleto
 

Dear fellow researchers,

A few people have asked me about the tax censuses (family lists) from the Surazh uezd (district) in 1888. I am happy to announce that these have now been translated and transcribed as part of the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project. The Surazh lists include 343 different surnames in 633 separate family groupings made up of 4034 individuals. I am attaching a list of the surnames to this email. 

The original pages can be seen online on the FamilySearch website in FHL film 1222347, Item 10. 

Previously as part of this project we have translated tax censuses from the Glukhov, Starodub, Konotop, Mglin, Oster, and Borzna uezds in 1882, from film 1222346. We have also completed a second set of censuses from the Mglin uezd in 1882 and censuses from the Krolevets uezd in 1888 from film 1222347.

In addition to the list of surnames from the Surazh uezd 1888 censuses, attachments to this email include name lists from Konotop 1882, Glukhov 1882, Mglin 1882 (part 1), and Starodub 1882.

 

To see lists of surnames from Oster 1882, Borzna 1882, Krolevets 1888, and Mglin 1882 (part 2) censuses, go to https://groups.jewishgen.org/g/UKR-Chernigov and click on #translation. The names lists are attached to previous progress reports for this translation project.
 

These translations are possible because of generous donations from so many who are interested in records from the former Chernigov gubernia.

Those who donate $100 or more to the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project on the JewishGen website are eligible to view the completed spreadsheets before they are uploaded to the website. Please contact me with proof of your donation if you want to see any of the spreadsheets as listed above. All donations of any size are appreciated and will continue to advance the project. You can donate through the following link: 

https://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=22

The information from the Surazh file will be uploaded to the JewishGen website at some point in the future. All of the censuses that were previously translated, except for Konotop and Krolevets, have now been uploaded to the JewishGen website and may be searched by surname. Note that they are classified on the JewishGen website as Ukraine Revision Lists, although a family list is actually slightly different from a revision list (another type of Russian census).

Best wishes,

Beth Galleto

exact location for the various record sets--and information on how you
can see if FamilySearch has images for records from any of your
ancestral towns.

Nezhin-Area Documents of Interest / Translators Needed

Lara Diamond
 

All,

I had a researcher in the Chernigov Archives this week copying cases
specifically related to my family. As I was paying him by the day, I
asked that any remaining time be spent copying Jewish lists that could
be of interest. I now have the following lists--and I'd love if
someone who can clearly read the Russian can help index the names, to
be shared with this list and also to be put on JewishGen.

(In addition, if anyone has the surname LEVIANT in Sosnitsa (village
Kariukovka), let me know; I had asked for LEFAND, and he photographed
LEVIANT as well, which seems to be a different family.)

- Chernigov governor's office. About adoption of elections to the
positions of the members of the governments of the Jewish religious
schools of Nezhin ujezd. 1895.

- Chernigov governor's office. On the application of the Jews of
Losinovka of Nezhin ujezd to open the Jewish religious school in the
town. 1901-1903.

- Chernigov governor's office. Correspondence with ujezd policemen
about the Jews, who got settled in the rural areas of Chernigov
gubernia prior to August 1, 1906. 1910-1912. (Lara's note: Tons and
tons of names and dates here)

- Chernigov governor's office. On the application of Nezhin town
council about adoption on their positions of the members of governance
of the Jewish religious schools of the town of Nezhin. 1884-1885.

If you're able to help with indexing names &/or translations, let me
know. There are hundreds of pages here, so the more volunteers, the
better!

All,
When you log in to the JewishGen Chernigov portal, there is a Chernigov wiki tab, and it is similar to our Chernigov website http://www.rootsweb.com/~ukrchern/ 
and has lists of where Chernigov records are, etc.,

Hello Members,
     If any of you are researching Bunin/Boonin, from Chernigov, please contact me.  I have information for you.  

Thank you,

Document Translation Project adds lists from Krolevets 1888 #ukraine #translation

Beth Galleto
 

Dear fellow researchers,

Tax censuses (family lists) from Krolevets uezd (district) in 1888 have now been translated and transcribed as part of the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project. The Krolevets lists include 185 different surnames, which I have extracted and attached to this email. The original pages can be seen online on the FamilySearch website in FHL film 1222347, Item 9. 

Previously as part of this project we have translated tax censuses from the Glukhov, Starodub, Konotop, Mglin, Oster, and Borzna uezds in 1882, from film 1222346 and additional censuses from the Mglin uezd in 1882 from film 1222347. This work is possible because of generous donations from so many who are interested in records from the former Chernigov gubernia.

Those who donate $100 or more to the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project on the JewishGen website are eligible to view the completed spreadsheets before they are uploaded to the website. Please contact me with proof of your donation if you want to see any of the spreadsheets as listed above. All donations of any size are appreciated and will continue to advance the project. You can donate through the following link: 

https://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=22

The information from the translation spreadsheets will be uploaded to the JewishGen website at some point in the future. Some have already been uploaded and may be searched by name. They are classified on the JewishGen website as Revision Lists, although they are slightly different from a Revision List (another type of Russian census).

I hope you are all getting a lot of online genealogy research done while staying safe.

Best wishes,

Beth Galleto
Project Leader

 

 


List of Shoah Victims from Pochep, Russia #russia #holocaust

Thank you!  My husband and I visited Pochep in June 2018, and we spent an entire day with Oleksia Petrovskaya, including time at the existing memorial, which was then under restoration.  Ms. Petrovskaya was so gracious and knowledgeable.  I am attaching photos of Oleksia (right) and me (left) at that time, plus two additional images showing the renovated memorial on the same site in Pochep two months later.
