Dear fellow researchers,
Tax censuses (family lists) from Borzna uezd (district) in 1882 have now been translated and transcribed as part of the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project. The lists include 205 families with 164 different 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, items 9 and 10.
Previously as part of this project we have translated tax censuses from the Glukhov, Starodub, Konotop, Mglin and Oster 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 with proof of your donation if you want to see any of the spreadsheets as listed above. All donations of any size are appreciated and will continue to advance the project. You can donate through the following link:
The Borzna translations complete film 1222346. Next to be translated is film 1222347, which includes additional tax censuses from the Mglin uezd in 1882 and from the Krolevets, Surazh, Novgorod-Seversk, Chernigov, Oster, Gorodnya, and Sosnitsa uezds in 1888.
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 staying safe.
