Document Translation Project adds lists from Mglin 1882 #ukraine #chernigov

Dear fellow researchers,


The Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project has now translated and transcribed tax censuses (family lists) from Mglin uezd (district) in 1882. I have 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 1222346.


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


Previously the project translated tax censuses from the Glukhov, Starodub, and Konotop uezds in 1882, from the same film. Our wonderful translator is continuing her work at an impressive pace. I am currently proofreading translations for the Oster uezd in 1882 and will soon be able to announce that spreadsheet as well. After 1222346 is completed, there are five other films that will also be included in this project.


The information from the translation spreadsheets will be uploaded to the JewishGen website at some point in the future.


I hope everyone is staying home, staying safe, and getting a lot of online genealogy research done. Happy Passover to you and your families.
