Finding Families in the Russian Empire 1795-1917: Census Records and More #education #events #russia

Jeff A.

Hello all! The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island is delighted to invite you to the first of our two February meetings.
When: Wednesday, February 16, 7:00 PM, via Zoom

Topic: Finding Families in the Russian Empire 1795-1917: Census Records and More. 

This will be a previously recorded presentation by Rhoda Miller. 

The Russian Empire compiled information about households in census-like records at various times: Revision Lists from 1719-1858, family lists from time to time thereafter, and an Empire-wide census in 1897. Using Russian Empire document examples, this session will explain how families can be followed from one Revision List to the next. This session will also demonstrate the importance of knowing an ancestor’s place of registration for finding related records.  

Rhoda Miller, Ed.D., CG® has been a Certified Genealogist since 1998, specializing in Jewish research and Holocaust studies. Rhoda is a Past President of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island (JGSLI).

Rhoda will do a Q&A after the recorded presentation where you can ask your personal questions.
