Chernigov gubernia

Chernigov Oblast's main Cities and Districts in 2005

 

Chernigov Gubernia

The gubernia of Chernikov was founded in 1796. It was reorganized into oblasts during the 1920s. Its major Jewish communities were:

Borzna Chernigov Glukhov Gorodnya Konotop
  Kozelets Krolevets Mglin Nezhin Novgorod Severskiy
  Novozybkov Oster Sosnitsa Starodub Surazh

 

There are currently no gubernia coordinators for Chernigov. If you have links to this gubernia, and are interested in helping coordinate its activities, please contact Ron Doctor . He'll tell you what's involved, and answer any questions.
