Comparing recently obtained Mogilev gubernia's 1907 Duma Voters Lists
with 1912's, I found out that the both of them contain approximately
the same number of records and the same level of representation of
Jewish population.

On the other hand, though the time interval between them is relatively
small, substantial number of names is present on one of them and absent
on the other. In some cases there is difference in details such as
spelling, a second name, a patronym, place of residence, property value,
etc. I luckily discovered the patronym of my Great Grandfather Girsh
Wolfson >from Monastyrshchina which was not present on 1912's lists.

The full article as well as both 1907's and 1912's lists of Chislavichi
Jewish voters can be found at "Jewish Chislavichi" website at
