Finding Families in Eastern Europe: Census Records and More
The Russian Empire compiled information about households in census-like records at various times. The Russian Empire compiled Revision Lists from 1719 until 1858, family lists from time to time thereafter, and an Empire-wide census in 1897. Using Russian Empire document examples, this session will explain how families can be followed from one Revision List to the next. This session will also demonstrate the importance of knowing an ancestor’s place of registration for finding related records.
