Re: What is this: Signed Document with Names in Yiddish (Hebrew Characters) in1816 Russian Revision List #russia #translation #records


Hello David,
This is a power of attorney issued by the Jewish cahal to some members of the kagal for submission to the Minsk State Chamber (Kazjonnaya palata) in connection with the new russian census. If I understand correctly, the Cahal of the city of Nesvizh authorizes three members of the cahal to conduct a new russian census.
