Hi Dennis,

if you mean Rostov-on-Don, then you're lucky-there are 3 volumes, compiled
on the basis of the first All-Russia census of 1897. They contain family
lists of Jews living in Rostov. Most of these lists indicate when and >from
where the family moved to Rostov. If you send me more details on the person
you are looking for - I'll try to find his family in these books (I have

My grandfather and GGF came >from Vilna. Using the resources provided
by LitvakSIG via JewishGen, I have been able to trace my lineage as
far back as my GGGF. Thanks!

Recently though, I have been in contact with people who I believe are
related, same family name [passport family name of one family
member,in Cyrillic, is the same as on my GF's internal passport], same
origins, yet live/have lived in Rostov since sometime around WW2.
Sadly, there is no one alive, in that branch of the family who knows
anything about their family other than the name of an ancestor who
lived somewhere >from 187- to 1916 (?), and are not sure whether he was
the first relative to arrive in Rostov. Thus we have not been able to
ascertain a common ancestor, the name is unusual enough.

My question is whether anyone knows if there are governmental
immigration or residential sources in Rostov that could indicate
origins of residents or names with dates.
