JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Granov 1875 Census Translation Project #general
A new project, now open for donations, will raise funds for translation of
927 pages of images >from the 1875 Jewish census of Granov, Gaisin
district, Podolia guberniya. This census is a list of Jews assigned to
the town of Teplick, but living in Granov.
Although assigned to Teplik, these Jews are living in Hraniv (Granov).
In the Russian Empire, people were registered in a particular town or
district, but had the ability to live in another town. Although they
might have lived in a town different >from their registration, revision
lists (Russian census) listed them in the town of registration. That
location is where a family's official records were maintained.
Column headings of the 1875 Jewish census are as follows:
- Family number by order
- Family number by revision list
- Surname, name, patronymic (males only)
- Age according to the revision list or assignment
- Where persons were staying at the day of census
Other towns are mentioned throughout this census. For example, one
random entry reads "resides in roadside tavern in the village of
Tsvilikhovka" and another mentions Lukasheva, both nearby towns. It is
for this reason, that the 1875 census of the Jews is a valuable
document. Family members might be residing in a different town which
could be identified on this census.
These records have not been filmed. They were privately purchased by a
group of researchers: Linda Jones Gibbs, Julie Halperson, Rhoda
Miller, and Michael Richman. There are 927 images representing
approximately 464 pages of records as each record is a double
page.Funds raised for this project will be used to translate the
records, entering them into a JewishGen spreadsheet template, and to
prepare the data for posting to the JewishGen Ukraine Database. The
spreadsheets will be available to contributors of $100 or more before
the data becomes available on the JewishGen Ukraine Database. To

I hope that you will consider donating to this new project. I hope
that those of you with Granov ancestry will contact me and work with me to
remember this town and the people who lived there.
Thank you in advance for your support.
