A genealogist living in Zhitomir, Ukraine whom I hired appears to have
found my ggf, Mendel Chernomorsky, listed in 1858 officials records for
Novograd-Volynsk. In his report, the genealogist says that Mendel was a
"member of the third guild." Can anyone provide any additional information
on the "third guild" in this area at this time?
