Oster 1882 censuses now translated #ukraine #translation

Beth Galleto

Dear fellow researchers,

Tax censuses (family lists) from Oster uezd (district) in 1882 have now been translated and transcribed as part of the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project. The lists include 371 families with 289 surnames. I have extracted the surnames that appear in the translations and have attached the list to this email. The original pages can be seen online on the FamilySearch website in FHL film 1222346. 

These translations from Oster join previous translations from the Glukhov, Starodub, Konotop and Mglin uezds in 1882, from the same film. This work is possible because of generous donations from so many who are interested in records from the former Chernigov gubernia.

Those who donate $100 or more to the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project on the JewishGen website are eligible to view the completed spreadsheets before they are uploaded to the website. Please contact me privately with proof of your donation if you want to see any of the spreadsheets. All donations of any size are appreciated and will continue to advance the project. You can donate through the following link: 


Our wonderful translator is continuing her work at an impressive pace. I am currently proofreading translations for the Borzna uezd in 1882 and will soon be able to announce that spreadsheet as well. After 1222346 is completed, there are five other films that will also be included in this project. 

The information from the translation spreadsheets will be uploaded to the JewishGen website at some point in the future. 

I hope you are getting a lot of online genealogy research done while we all are sheltering in place. 

Best wishes,

Beth Galleto
Project Leader
