Yes, it is correct.

Just to add: registration in most cases happened during revisions or similar
ocasions. What means - not often.

Sagnificans of "NN meshchanin" or something like this in documents for
official use was not only to show where the person was born, but specify his/her
rights that depended in Russia on social status, gender, age, religious
affiliation, occupation, registered residence, relation to military service, etc.

Jews >from different Gubernia with all other social characteristic the same
could have different rights.

Rechitsa was an uezd (district) in Minsk guberniya (province).

To my knowledge, Nezhin was not in Rechitsa uezd. However, Jews were
in the town they came >from and may have had permission to live elsewhere
changing their official registration.
