Dear fellow researchers,
I am happy to announce that tax censuses (family lists) from the Novgorod Seversk uezd (district) in 1888 have now been translated and transcribed as part of the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project. The lists include 409 families composed of 2,582 individuals. Among these families there are 258 surnames, which I have extracted and attached to this email. The original pages can be seen online on the FamilySearch website in FHL film 1222347, item 11.
Previously as part of this project we have translated tax censuses from the Borzna, Glukhov, Konotop, Mglin, Oster, and Starodub uezds in 1882, and from the Krolevets and Surazh uezds in 1888. The original books can be seen in FHL films 1222346 and 1222347.
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:
Next to be translated on film 1222347 will be tax censuses from the Chernigov uezd, and then the Oster, Gorodnya, and Sosnitsa uezds in 1888.
The information from most of the previously translated spreadsheets has been uploaded to the JewishGen website. They can be searched by entering a surname in the JewishGen Unified Search. When the results page appears, click on those listed as "Ukraine Revision Lists". (The tax censuses are not actually revision lists, but they are similar enough to be categorized under this heading.)
I hope you are getting a lot of online genealogy research done while staying safe.
