Dear fellow researchers,
Progress continues on the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project. We have now completed a second set of family lists (tax censuses) from the Mglin uezd (district) in 1882. A list of surnames that appear in these additional lists is attached.
The Mglin 1882 Part 2 lists were filmed by the LDS church as part of film 1222347. The original Russian documents can be seen on the FamilySearch website. Data from the translations will be posted on the JewishGen website at some time in the future. Donors of $100 or more to the Chernigov Gubernia Document Translation Project are eligible to view the spreadsheets before the data is posted online.
Donations to the project may be made through this link:
Translations of the first set of Mglin 1882 family lists, as well as translations of lists from the Glukhov and Starodub uezds in 1882, can now be viewed online on the JewishGen website under the classification of Ukraine Revision Lists. The original documents can be seen on the FamilySearch website in film 1222346.
On a personal note, the Mglin Part 2 translations contain a three-generation family list of my own Levitin family, as well as lists of several other families that are related to the Levitins. I look forward to figuring out the possible connections.
Best wishes,Beth Galleto
