Kozelets Family Lists from 1888 Are Translated #ukraine #translation

Beth Galleto

Dear fellow researchers,

Tax censuses (family lists) from the Kozelets uezd (district) in 1888 have now been translated and transcribed as part of the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project.

The lists include 169 numbered families made up of 1,136 individuals. Among these families there are 157 surnames. I have extracted these surnames and attached the list to this email. The original pages can be seen online on the FamilySearch website in FHL film 1409779, item 4. 

So far this project has translated tax censuses from six Chernigov uezds in 1882, and from ten uezds in 1888. Data from all except the most recently translated of these lists can be accessed through the JewishGen search page.

Search for your surnames of interest from the lists that have been uploaded by entering each name in the JewishGen Unified Search. When the results page appears, click on those listed for the heading "Ukraine Revision Lists". (The tax censuses or family lists are not actually revision lists, but they are similar enough to be categorized under this heading.)  

Those who donate $100 or more to the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project on the JewishGen website are eligible to view the completed spreadsheets before they are uploaded to the website. Please contact me with proof of your donation if you want to see any of the finished spreadsheets. All donations of any size are appreciated and will continue to advance the project. You can donate through the following link: 


Next to be translated will be tax censuses from the Glukhov uezd in 1888.

Best wishes,

Beth Galleto,
Project Leader
