Families next to each other on Revision Lists - possibly related? #latvia


Simon Zelman
 

I have an 1858 revision list for my HOLZMAN ancestors >from Tukums,
Latvia, which lists my great x4 grandfather Chatskel HOLZMAN, his wife
Schorre/Sora, and children. Sora, unfortunately, doesn't have a maiden
name or a father's name. I went through the 1834 revision lists for
Tukums (which I believe are complete) and noted all of the
Sora/Sara/Schorre's that were listed whose ages matched up (the 1858
one listed Schorre as being 37, so born around 1821).

There were a few candidates but I honed in on one that seemed
promising (the names of the ancestors matched up to Chatskel and
Schorre's children's names, the age was exact). I explored this Sore
TAUB and her family, and found very similar names in her siblings'
descendants as Schorre and Chatskel's descendants. I then went through
the 1858 revision lists and found Sore TAUB's brother Itzig TAUB (and
his family) on the same page as my Chatskel and Schorre's family!

I'm very wary of drawing conclusions without definitive proof, and so
far I just have a lot of probable evidence but no smoking gun. What I
am curious about is if anyone knows the methodology of the revision
lists (the 1858 one specifically). If two families appear next to each
other on a revision list, could that mean that they either lived in
the same house or maybe right next door? Has anyone come across
records in their families where a daughter who marries into another
family appears on a revision list next to her parents (or brother in
this case)? But more specifically, not listed as part of the same
family (the HOLZMANs and TAUBs are treated as different families on
the list--different section, different family number for this
revision, different family number of the previous revision).
