Three very interesting 1875 lists translated for Lida and Vasilishki (in the Lida District) #general


Dear fellow Lida District researchers:

I'm delighted to let you know that we've translated three very interesting
1875 Lists of Men >from the Lida District.

Two are >from Lida town <LID_LID_1_1875_men> (595 individuals) and
<LID_LID_2_1875_men> (679 individals), and one >from Vasilishki
<LID_VAS_1875_men> (1,873 individuals). Despite the names of these files,
they contain many people who are either residing or are registered in Lida
District towns other than Lida and Vasilishki.

<LID_LID_1> is divided by the streets on which people lived -- look for the
orange-highlighted rows with "Novy Gorod Street," "near the Pharmacy" and
other information about a family's location in Lida. This file also contains
some physical descriptions and ages.

There is a surname list for these files at the bottom of our site's homepage
(, under Surname Lists.

While these files will eventually be publicly searchable in the LitvakSIG
All-Lithuania Database and the JewishGen Belarus Database, they are currently
available only to participants in the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group.

To become part of the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group, a qualifying
contribution of $100 to LitvakSIG will guarantee you access to Excel Files
of all translations -- new and old -- of Lida District records through December
31, 2021.

To contribute, please go to:

Your contribution will not only provide you access to these files, it will help
us translate the 1905 Family Lists for Lida town, Orlya, Radun and Shchuchin.
And because we have been able to obtain a matching grant, everything you
contribute will be doubled and help us reach our goal twice as fast!

Please let me know if you have any questions,
