Revision Lists #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

I am sending this email to Ukraine SIG too, because they may find valuable
information too.

You probably know that we have now in Bessarabia Revision List database
about 146,000 records, and looking ahead I think that we will translated
another 100,000 or more.
I am still getting new microfilms not known before >from FHL, and I want to
share information about one of the microfilms.

The information in the microfilm is not pure Revision Lists. It includes
General Lists for
Merchants of towns of Beltsy, Akkerman, and Akkerman uezd for 1875,
Merchants of Khotin of 1865, 1888,
Merchants of Bendery for 1888, and Akkerman of 1888

But what is interesting in this microfilm, we have a lot of images of all
kinds of documents of Jews becoming Merchants or loosing Merchants estate
and becoming Middle Class, etc. etc.

Here are a few examples:

1) Letter >from Podolia Treasure Chamber to Bessarabia Treasury Chamber.
Treasure Chamber listen to a Report about re-listing Jews LEYBENZON Shmul
and REKHELIS Moshko into Bendery, Khmelnitskiy Jewish Society did not agree
of re-listing Jew LEYBENZON Shmul until he will pay 10 rubl., and Bratslav
town magistrate decided that Tulchin Jewish Society did not agree of
re-listing into Bendery Jew REKHELIS Moshko until he will pay off the
debt.... etc. etc.. 2 more pages

2) Public Verdict. 1858, we signed Jews >from Volyn Gubernia, Lutsk uezd,
place Rafailovka decided that Jew SHTENBERG Moshko son of Khaim who reside
in Bendery Bessarabia, cannot be re-listed into Bendery... (again there are
some financial reasons... text is on several pages, but what is
interesting is that 36 Head of Households signed that document.)
There is also a document send by Moshko Shtenberg about re-listing into
Bendery Middle Class.

There some other documents signed by many people...

These documents are not part of Revision Lists, and should be translated
separately. Of course it will take more time to do such translations, but
I think it gives a flavor of Jewish life in 19 century and enhance our
Genealogical research. I would encourage people who can read Russian, the
script is more or less readable, come forward to translate these valuable
documents.
There are documents for towns in Podol gubernia, Khotin, Bendery, Akkerman,
some documents are correspondence between Bessarabia and Minsk, Volyn, etc.
etc.

We also need people who can translate >from Russian Revision Lists, General
Lists.

All the best,

Search help needed #general

Robert Hanna
 

I found a listing for a document I need in the The JewishGen Lithuania
Database by searching for Surname "Khane", GivenName "Nokhem" in
Region "Kaunas / Kovno uyezd." There is a link to the Microfilm #
2331971 / Item # 3 / Image # 475 and Record # 133. Once I click on
the Microfilm link I cannot figure out how to locate the exact page of
the document I am looking for (marriage record of Nokhem Khane and
Ester Leia Voiner). I am unfamiliar with the language. Can you help
guide me to the exact page the document is on?

Thanks so much,
Robert Hanna

Kaliningrad, the exhibition will show, how the Jewish society in this
town looked like at the turn of the century. The exhibition answers
the question which Jewish men and women contributed to the construction

Relatives from Kupel, Russia #general

Marilynn Bloom <michitradingco@...>
 

Hi Everyone,
I've been on JewishGen for many years and I am looking for records from
Kupel, Russia. Almost all my paternal family is >from there, and I have not
been able to find any info on Kupel. I belong to the Ukraine Sig group and I
believe there's still a Town Leader for Kupel, but so far nothing has been
published. I know there is a large group of Kupelians in NY, but that has
not been helpful for me. If there is anyone who could help me in my search,
I would truly appreciate it? Thanks so much.
