understanding Russian language passport #belarus #russia #translation

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 :)
