Bessarabia Revision List project #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan

Dear researchers Happy New Year, Happy New genealogical discoveries.

There are 12 new microfilms for the Bessarabia Revision list project I have
received >from Family Search.

Several microfilms are filled with images of Revision lists for Kishinev,
1848, 1859, also there are images >from Beltsy, Rashkov, Kagul, Leovo,
Kalarash, and a few more places. In a week with update for September, you
will be able to see all sets of records available in these 12 microfilms.
It is possible that some of the sets are the second copy of the sets we already have,
but in this case, there might be images that did not exist in the first set, and
we will add all of those to Romania-Moldova Database at

Our Revision List Bessarabia Team has already started a new "season", and
here are the records in work: Orgeev, 1848; Ataki 1848; Brichani 1848;
Orgeev Merchants 1859; Gancheshty 1835, Teleneshti 1859. And there are a
number of sets of different towns which are waiting to be translated. You
can see the whole list (not including the new 12 microfilms at

There is an experience in Bessarabia SIG when one of our members asked if
possible to translate several sets of records faster... and we did this for
a donation to one of our Bessarabia SIG projects. In this case that person
received the whole set of records prior to sending it to JewishGen, and
several copies of original images for a specified family. The amount of
donation depends on a number of images in the set, but usually it is going
to be >from $100-$400 per set. Please let me know if you are interested.

I also want to ask for volunteers to translate Revision lists >from Russian.
You can do a specific town/year records if interested. Also after volunteer
finishes the set, s/he will get all the privileges as a donor for that set
(can get all the records in that set, copies of specific images if asked.)

I am looking forward to hear >from new VOLUNTEERS and also SPONSORs/DONORs of
sets of Revision Lists project.

All the best,
