Belarus SIG #Belarus Three very interesting 1875 lists translated for Lida and Vasilishki (in the Lida District) #belarus
Dear fellow Lida District researchers:
I'm delighted to let you know that we've translated
three very interesting 1875 Lists of Men >from the Lida District.
Two are >from Lida town <LID_LID_1_1875_men> (595 individuals)
and <LID_LID_2_1875_men> (679 individals), and one from
Vasilishki <LID_VAS_1875_men> (1,873 individuals). Despite
the names of these files, they contain many people who are either
residing or are registered in Lida District towns other than Lida
<LID_LID_1> is divided by the streets on which people lived --
look for the orange-highlighted rows with "Novy Gorod Street,"
"near the Pharmacy" and other information about a family's
location in Lida. This file also contains some physical descriptions
There is a surname list for these files at the bottom of our site's
homepage (https://lidadistrict.shutterfly.com), under Surname Lists.
While these files will eventually be publicly searchable in
the LitvakSIG All-Lithuania Database and the JewishGen
Belarus Database, they are currently available only to
participants in the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group.
