Just to add: registration in most cases happened during revisions or similar

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.

Rechitsa was an uezd (district) in Minsk guberniya (province).
To my knowledge, Nezhin was not in Rechitsa uezd. However, Jews were
