Dear fellow researchers,
Tax censuses (family lists) from communities in the Sosnitsa uezd (district) in 1888 have now been translated and transcribed as part of the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project.
The Sosnitsa lists include 425 numbered families and 2439 individuals. Among these families there are 270 surnames. I have extracted these surnames and attached the list to this email. The original pages can be seen online on the FamilySearch website in FHL film 1222347, item 15, continuing through FHL film 1409779, item 1.
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 completed spreadsheets. All donations of any size are appreciated and will continue to advance the project. You can donate through the following link:
Family lists from 12 uezds in the Chernigov gubernia, some from 1882 and some from 1888, have previously been translated through this project. The information from all but the most recent of these has been uploaded to the JewishGen website. They can be searched by entering your surname of interest in the JewishGen Unified Search. When the results page appears, click on those listed for the heading "Ukraine Revision Lists". (The tax censuses/family lists are not actually revision lists, but they are similar enough to be categorized under this heading.)
Next to be translated will be tax censuses/family lists from the Konotop uezd in 1888.
