(No. 4/2006 – April 2006)
Editor: Fran Bock

Frequent contributor and great friend of the Belarus SIG, Vitaly Charny, found this budget for the City of Minsk, 1877, in the newspaper "Minskie Gubernskie Vedomosti" . Since Jews comprised a significant proportion of the population, perhaps as much as half, this budget certainly affected some of our ancestors, at least as taxpayers. The nature of the items listed for income and expenditures also gives us a glimpse into some aspects of their lives.

 We thank Vitaly for translating this little gem for us.
