Recently got an image of my great-grandfather's brother's 1893 Russian passport (included as an attachment here) from a distant cousin. The Russian appears to refer to the following:
the "borough" of “Swinziansky”
“county of Vilna”
the “Swir” "jewish community"
“Michael Shimelevitch Kaplan”
But I would very much appreciate assistance with translating and/or with identifying any of the places, aside from Vilna, which is not difficult :)
