These are listed in Mr. Rhode's book on Lithuanian archive holdings. I
would like to research the pages for Podzelva, Vilkomir District. I
look forward to the 1858 Vilkomir District Revision List going online,
but the lists for the 1870's would be more useful for my genealogical
purposes.

Dear Steve,
We don't have the 1874 or 1879 Vilkomir Revision Lists, but the
Vilkomir Uyezd Research group of the LitvakSIG has acquired the
1858 Revision List. For those of you who are not yet a part of our
Vilkomir District research group, I am using this as an opportunity
to restate what these lists include, and ask for further support.

<snip>

The Vilkomir Revision Lists separately list merchants, inhabitants
and craftsmen, and provide a lot of information about what happened
to each person since the last revision List in 1850 and for a
seventeen year period until the next revision list (1876).

Here is where I get confused :-)
How does an 1858 revision list provide data for a 17 year period -
till 1876. Was the 1858 Revision list actually closed in 1876,
making it an 1876 revision of the 1858 list?

Add to my confusion was this Aug 11 post:

In a letter dated 1 August 1995 >from the Lithuanian State Historic
Archives, chief archivist Galina Baranova wrote:
"The archives keeps some Revision lists of the residents of Jewish
communities of the Vilkomir district for the 19th century.
Revision lists for the year 1858 are more complete."
And again on 21 August 1995, Galina wrote:
"I have looked through all revision lists of residents of Seta,
including 1858-1859, 1874, 1878-1880, 1893-1894. I have looked
through all Jewish communities of the Vilkomir district for the
year 1858. These revision lists are more complete. Another
revision lists are additional revision lists."
Thus the decision of the SIG's Vilkomir Uyezd Research group to
concentrate their resources on the 1858 Vilkomir district list was
a wise one because it is the most complete, as opposed to the
additional revision lists of later years.
<snip>

Without arguing the SIGs decision to focus on the 1858 list (which
I gather was actually closed in 1876); (1) what are the
corresponding information dates included in the later Revision
lists?, (2) What is the fee for individual requests to the archives
for searches of these later less complete lists? and (3)Is data so
sparse in the later lists as to make success unlikely?

Forgive me if everyone else already understands this.

Does anyone know whether these were all published, and if so, are copies
avalable anywhere for viewing?

Telechan & Lohishin #general

Arthur Eisenberg <ae9h@...>
 

There have been a couple of postings about these places since the advent
of the Belarus SIG.
WHERE ONCE WE WALK lists them as different names for the same place.
This is not accurate.
Telechan is at 52 31'/25 59'
Lohishin is at 52 20'/ 25 59'

Gary Mokotoff has assured me that this will be corrected some time in the
future.

Searching HAAS #general

Richard H Henley <rhenley1@...>
 

Looking for news about Joseph Haas who emigrated to the USA from
Switzerland about 1850-1860. Settled in New London, CT and married
Katherine Hamel. They had about 8 children and he may have worked as a
baker. I believe he died about 1932 in Sharon, Massachusetts.

In the Summer 1998 edition of "Avotaynu" there was article on "Jewish Colonists
in Ekaterinoslav Guberniya" regarding RAGAS Report Vol. IV, 1 which has a
listing of surnames of the Jewish Colonists for New-Zlatopol and other
colonies. I wrote an e-mail to the RAGAS Report asking how to get a copy and
haven't heard >from them yet. Does anyone have a copy of the actual RAGAS
article.

Rudy (or Rudek) used to be very popular abbreviation for Rudolph.

I am researching the MELTSNERS >from Lithuania (Kovno region). Does anyone
know what, if anything, Meltsner means. I had once heard that the name may
imply that they were malt merchants. Perhaps there is a hebrew meaning.
