Bessarabia Revision Lists. December 2015 Update. Three sets of records are
ready: Orgeev, Merchants, 1859, different towns, Merchants, 1859,
Gancheshty (Kotovsk), 1835. Also a number of sets are about to be ready:
for Ataki, 1848 (this is an addition to what was already uploaded in June
of 2015), Brichany, 1848, Teleneshty, 1859, Zguritsa, 1854 and Kishinev,
Merchants, 1859, and hope to be ready with more records on Kishinev!
The records will be sent to JewishGen at the end of December of 2015, and at
some point in 2016 be available at the Romanian/Bessarabian database.
If any of our members want to get a set records before that, that
is possible to do for a donation of $100 to Bessarabia SIG General fund. For
that you can get a whole list of town set of records and also if interested
a copy of a page of original Revision in Russian with your ancestors.
