Lithuanian Revision Lists #lithuania


Jeremy Lichtman
 

Does anyone know what criteria would result in a person being removed from a revision list?

i.e. is it possible for somebody to be listed in a list dated 1907 who had left Lithuania circa 1890 (rest of the family were still resident)?

My understanding is that changing official residence from one town to another was a nuisance, but would that still apply with regards to immigration?

Hi Jeremy,

I have seen family members listed as missing on revision lists from Ariogala (near Kovna.)  These people were already living in NYC at the time of being listed as "missing."

First, lets clear us some terminology.  By 1907, these lists are referred to as family lists, not revision lists. I too have the issue of people remaining on a family list after they had actually left Lithuania.  I was told by Rhoda Miller, an expert on this subject,  that this is not uncommon.  Unlike a US census, people were just carried over from one list to the next.

I would agree with Sheri Bobish that a "missing" note is possible. Also, in my experience, 20th century lists can list people who had emigrated or, who, given their age, were probably dead without such a notation.  

Sometimes families managed to convince the authorities that emigrants were dead, when they were in fact alive elsewhere in Russia or abroad.
