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:

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
