Hello friends, Shavua Tov,
I want to share with you good news about our Bessarabia records findings.
Thanks a lot to our volunteer Deborah Glassman. She found among FamilySearch microfilms a huge set of microfilms from 1835, Revision Lists, and some with Jewish records. We just started to look into them, and for now here are something we found:
1. Khotin uezd, 1835, the town is written "Mogilev-Ataki". I am not sure what that really means. Maybe in 1835 Mogilev, which is on another side from Ataki was part of Bessarabia?! I do not know abou this.
Friends from Ukraine group, maybe you know anything about it? In any case, we are going to transcribe these pages.
2. Soroki, 1835. Interesting that uezd is Yassy... that uezd later became Beltsy uezd. Possible that 1835 Soroki was part of a large Yassy uezd.
3. Skulyany, Yassy (Beltsy) uezd, 1835
I believe that we will find more of Jewish records in that huge pile of microfilms, which are not catalogued.
If anyone is interested to work on translation of these Revision Lists, please let me know.
Also if you searched FamilySearch and found Jewish records, which we do not have, please let us know too. We will be able to translate all of them!
Again, thanks to Deborah G. who is helping us tremendously.
All the best,
