Lithuania SIG #Lithuania 1816/18 Revision Lists for Orlya, Rozhanka and Zheludok (in the Lida District) now translated #lithuania
Dear fellow Lida District researchers:
I've just uploaded to the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group
site (https://lidadistrict.shutterfly.com) the translations of
the 1816/18 Revision List for the towns of Orlya, Rozhanka
and Zheludok. There are 249 listings for Orlya, 300 for
Rozhanka and 372 for Zheludok.
The surnames for these lists are on the site's homepage
under the section marked Surname Lists.
Because this was early in the time Jews in this area were
getting surnames, I cross-checked the names in this file
with the translation of the 1834 Revision List for those towns.
When I could confirm the listings were for the same family, I
indicated spelling variants, putting the 1834 version in square
brackets, i.e., BORODICH / [BORODZITSKI].
Although these translations will eventually be publicly searchable
in the LitvakSIG All Lithuania Database and JewishGen Belarus
Database, they are currently available only to qualified participants
of the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group.
To become part of the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group, go to
click on "Research Groups for Districts and Gubernias" and choose
the Lida District.
A contribution of $100 US will guarantee you immediate access to
translations of records >from all Lida District towns -- new and old --
through December 31, 2020. So far the LitvakSIG Lida District
Research Group has translated records for more than 85,000
of our Lida District family members.
The Orlya, Rozhanka and Zheldok lists make nine of the 12 official
towns of registration in the Lida District for which the 1816/18 Revision
List has been translated. Still remaining are the lists for Belitsa, Novy Dwor
and Shchuchin. Your contribution to the LitvakSIG Lida District Research
Group will help ensure that we can complete the 1816/18 Revision List,
as well as translating additional records for Lida District towns.
Please do let me know if you have any questions about this list.
Judy Baston, Coordinator,
LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group
