Lithuanian Revision Lists online - Fond 515/15 - Vilna #Lithuania

I neglected to mention the method used to find these records on the Familysearch website. Go to the catalog and perform a dual search as follows:

1. Enter Vilnius as the place name
2. select Keyword and enter census

It is interesting to note these records are filed under census rather than separating the records by religion and categorizing the ones for the Jewish community under "Jewish records". Let this be  word to the wise sleuth  - when searching through Familysearch for records, absolutely do not limit your search to the "Jewish records" section.

The original post stated:

As of yesterday (when I discovered them), images from many Revision Lists from LVIA / 515/15 / 1-500 (approximately) are online at Familysearch.org. These primarily represent the 1795, 1811, and 1816 revisions for Vilna gubernia. 

 

From the FamilySearch.org Catalog Search page, how does one navigate to these revision lists?  Do we know which towns in the Vilna gubernia are included in these lists?

Note: these online record sets are not limited to Jewish records. Please refer to the RTR Foundation (Miriam Weiner) archive database for your town of interest under census records. Alternatively, refer to the Russian language LVIA guide to fond LVIA / 515/15 available at https://eais-pub.archyvai.lt/eais/faces ... F3001.jspx
