CAHJP Documents, 1835 Kremenets Fire Victims, KDRG 1521835
List of residents of the town of Kremenets who suffered losses as result of a fire on April 13, 1835. The document mentions the amount to be loaned to the victims during the next 10 years from the treasury.

This document actually deals with a fire in Kremenets.
In 2008, the CAHJP Catalog listed 81 items under Litin. Some of those catalog entries have been acquired by Rose Feldman, and some of the acquired documents have been translated, at least partially. The translation from Russian to English of "List of residents of the town of Kremenets who suffered losses as result of fire on April 13, 1835" is available on the Litin KehilaLinks website (http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/litin/) and in the Kremenets Concordance. The website says the document lists 52 names, but only 12 are in the table and another 8 are signatures below the table.
