Volhynia Gubernia - Three Districts Translation Project #ukraine #records


COMCAST Pop
 

We have now submitted fully translated information on over 15,000 people from the 1858 Revision List of Novohrad Volynskyy District to the JewishGen data base.  In addition to names, the lists can contain information on family relationships, occupational group (merchant, handworker), and other comments such as “Absent since 1854, whereabouts unknown” or “enrolled as agriculturalists in Rovno district in 1855”.  There are still more treasures waiting to be revealed from the remainder of this Revision List but we need donations to complete the translation.   When this list is complete, there are several other complete Revision Lists and supplemental lists for these three districts (Novohrad Volynskyy, Zaslav and Starokostyantinov districts) waiting to be translated. Any amount is appreciated, but the most generous donors (>$100) to this JewishGen project receive their own copies of the spreadsheets as they are completed, To make a donation on JewishGen.org, under the Donate tab, select Ukraine Research Division, and then select Volhynia Gubernia - 3 districts.  Thank you for your support.

So is it possible that there are records for Kupel inside these collections, if the towns are not identified on other revision list years? Routes to Roots indicates that it is at least included in 1858.

Yes,  It is possible that your town is included in the list.  If you can recognize the town name in Cyrillic, you can look at the documents through the Family Search Website by looking for Krakovsky documents.
