Rovno Uezd Region: Jewish Records Project (Tuchin, Rivne, Dubrovitsa, Korets, more) #general

Dear Genners:

I would like to share some exciting news for anyone who has roots in the
former Rovno uezd (district) of Volin Guberniya. Recently, the Ukraine SIG,
with the cooperation of the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish
People (CAHJP), acquired the digital images >from 5 rolls of microfilm
containing Russian-language revision lists (revizskie skazki) for 1811,
1816-28, 1850-52 and 1858-74 for towns in the Rovno uezd. The list of known
towns at this time includes: Tuchin, Horynhrad/Kripa, Rivne and Dubrovitsa.
There are also 1932 tax lists >from the town of Korets (Korzec) on the same
reels. This project will fund the translation of these 6500+ pages of
original documents and eventually make the data available to everyone via
the JewishGen Ukraine Database.

You can find out more about this new project by going to the Ukraine SIG
donation page:

and select "Rovno Uezd Region: Jewish Records Project"

or click on this link:

This is a big project, and we need your help to make it work. Please
consider a donation. We will also be needing capable Russian- and
Polish-language translators, so if you are interested in participating,
please contact me.

Thanks so much for your JewishGen-erosity!

Best regards,

David R. Brill
