Looking over my paperwork for the Ziselman family in Okolov/Akalova in the
1850s (>from the revision census list) I notice the name a of a relative
living with the family, and who is called Hirshe Nokhomovitch Shilevich. He
was born in 1809 and died in 1844. He is listed together with Aron
Abramovitch Raskind, who also lived with the Ziselmans.
Does this ring a bell to anyone? Was it ever a practice for some older
"relative" to be listed as living with someone and for some reason they
weren't really a relative? Also, why did revision lists list the name of
someone who had died years before?
