Inventory of 1834 Revision List for Vilna #lithuania


Joel Ratner
 

The 1834 Revision List for "Vilna" includes records from LVIA/515/15/542 - 548. The records from 542 are currently part of the ALD. I have taken full inventory of the records in 543 - 548. Jill and Russ estimated there are approximately 15,000 records among the 6 LDS microfilms holding these records. I can report there are 7600 registration numbers with records to be translated and can confirm there are many records for other towns including:
 
Snipishok
Antokol
Boguslavishok
Gelvan
Mikhalishok
Malat
Shirvint
 
There are also a handful of records for Musnik and Podberezhe as well as a whole host of others.
 
There is also a single record for Olkeniki. The surname for that record is LEIPUN.
 
The listing I developed indexes the image numbers so it is easy to figure out where records for a given town are located. Anyone interested in the spreadsheet can email me.

I've attached the inventory for the 1834 Vilna Revision List.

I’d be interested in searching this index for my maternal grandfather Hyman (Chaim) JOSEPH and for his father, Israel or Asrael JOSEPH.

The file I sent out is an inventory of the microfilms and LVIA registers containing the records. The records themselves have not been indexed. If you are interested  in perusing the microfilms, you can do that but you will need knowledge of handwritten Russian.

Thank you Joel for this detailed inventory (and for alerting me previously about the presence of these films online). LitvakSIG has already begun translation work. There is much new here, but not everything. As you pointed out, file 542 has already been translated. We have also translated a different file, LVIA/515/25/300, which is a duplicate file of the 1834 revision list and subsequent additional revision lists for Vilna district, but not Vilna city itself. Through this translation, the following places are done and available through the ALD: Boguslavishok, Gelvan, Michalishok, Malyat, Musnik, Podbrezhe, and Shirvint (lines 40-58 and 165-196 on your inventory). This reduces the number of new registrations to be translated by about 2000. Our estimate of the work to be done did not include these places.

We would welcome any volunteer translators who would like to help out with this effort. Please get in touch with me. Knowledge of Russian is required.

As we complete these translations, they will first be made available to donors to the Vilnius District Research Group, and then will be added to the ALD after about 18 months. Please consider supporting the project through a donation to the DRG. A qualifying donation of $100 will give you five years of access to all of the Vilna DRG files as well as new translations as they come out.

Is there a way to access the Malat records to peruse rather than doing various searches in ALD?
