1858 Jubarkas Revision List #lithuania

Hi all,
I am trying to prove a connection between my 3rd great grandmother Leah Sundelowitz (1836-1917) and the Zundelevich's/ Zundel's of Jubarkas/Yurburg. In her husband's siddur her first two sons were born in Gorgenburg which is the German equivalent of the town also since her husband was from Sakiai I am assuming this was her home town as the groom usually married in the bride's town in those days. She moved to the united states in 1869 and moved to Rushville, Indiana where her son Will/William was born. Back in Jubarkas there was a Zalkind Zev Zundel (died 1848) who may have been her father as Zev can mean Wolf which can mean Will in English. The only way I can confirm this is probably through the 1858 revision list which is currently not online for Jubarkas. Does anyone know if it is being translated or was it destroyed? 

Thank you for your time, Elani Joseph

Routes to Roots says the 1859 tax list is in the Kaunus Regional Archives - https://www.rtrfoundation.org/results.php?rin=12106&testing=0

I'm thinking out loud here, but another route might be to locate individuals from both lines and compare DNA?

Jeremy Lichtman's tip is good. Even better, LitvakSIG translated that tax list long ago and it has 25 ZUNDEL/ZUNDELOVICH entries (all males). It's all available on the ALD (www.litvaksig.org/search-ald) by searching surname starts with zund combined with any field contains kra i 49 1 4166.

There is also an additional revision list for Jurbarkas for 1864, 1868, and 1869 which has one relevant entry, for Ber Zundel, son of Meier, age 16.

I'm not sure about any 1858 RL. The Historical archive catalog lists a file (LVIA/1262/1/80) that is supposedly the 1858 for Taurage and Jurbarkas. We DO have an 1858 list for Taurage which may be that file (in which case there probably was no Jurbarkas), but I can't be sure because the reference in the translation just says LVIA. There are no ZUNDELs in the Taurage list. Unfortunately, the original images are not online. We'll look into it, but it will take some time.
