The JewishGen Belarus Database contains revision lists from Belarus and towns that used to be part of Belarus.

The Reviska Skazka (Revision Lists) were conducted in territories ruled by the Russian Czar in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Revision Lists enumerated only those individuals subject to taxation. The data was also utilized for identifying men to draft into the army. There were ten major Reviska Skazka taken, beginning in 1720 and ending in 1858. Each new revision would indicate changes to the population referenced in the prior revision. Between the revisions (and after the last one in 1858) were "additional revision lists", used to fill in information missed in the prior major revision. The dates of the revisions are important because reference is made to an individual’s "Age at Last Revision.

The earliest revisions are irrelevant for Jewish genealogical research, due to their limited information, and the small number of Jews within the borders of the Russian Empire at that time. These are the dates of revisions of consequence:

  • 5th: 1795

  • 6th: 1811

  • 7th: 1816

  • 8th: 1834

  • 9th: 1850

  • 10th: 1858

For an explanation of the information found in Revision List records, see http://www.jewishgen.org/litvak/html/revision.htm.  Further information on the history of Revision Lists can be found in an article by Boris Feldblyum in Avotaynu XIV:3 (Fall 1998), pp. 59-61, also available at http://www.bfcollection.net/fast/articles/ruscensus.pdf.  The following notes supplement those excellent pieces by addressing the Revision Lists for towns in Belarus, and focus on search strategies with the Belarus Revision Lists in mind.

The following types of records can be found in this database:

  • Revision Lists - Extensive records for Jewish citizens have been located for the 5th through 10th revisions for towns located in Belarus. Many records have been published on JewishGen through the LitvakSIG and JewishGen Belarus SIG.

  • Additional Revision Lists - Between the Revisions, and after the 10th (last) revision, there could be data collected to supplement the most recent full revision.

  • Alphabetical List of Males - These lists include only the males who lived in a locality based on revision lists. The ages are from the previous revision list. Since these were alphabetical lists, the registration numbers are not in sequence.

  • Jewish Conscripts - list of male members of a household for conscription purposes. There are many of these lists for the year 1874. Since these lists often include the registration numbers from previous revision lists the revision list template has been used.
  • Family lists- lists of entire households. Many of these records have been found in the period 1885-1894 and relate to families that moved to/from smaller villages from/to larger towns. These were not revision lists but since the data is very similar to the data contained in revision lists we have used the revision list template for these data sets.

The language of the 1795 Revision List was in Polish for those areas "acquired" from Poland. At that time, most of the Jews did not have surnames, however, the head of household is listed with a patronymic (his father's given name), together with the residents of the household and their relationship to him. The 1806, 1811, 1816, 1834, 1850 and 1858 Revision Lists are in the Russian language.

Translation/Transliteration Methods

Translators are instructed to follow JewishGen transcription rules.  Unless otherwise noted, transliterations follow the BGN/PCGN Romanization of Russian and the YIVO Romanization Standard for Yiddish/Hebrew. 

Records have been formatted according to JewishGen transcription templates.

If the Hebrew/Yiddish name differs from the Russian name, both names are listed separated by a forward slash (/)

Recommendations for Searching

Search the records using the Daitch-Mokotoff Soundex as well as the exact name, due to variations in spelling and because some records were transliterated from Russian only and not Hebrew.

Search all town records even if you believe you know the town your relatives came from.  Families moved around quite a lot, so the records that you are searching for could be in any database. 

Obtaining Copies of Original Records

If a record has been microfilmed by the Church of Latter Day Saints (LDS), then one can order the microfilm from any Family History Center.  You will need to know the Family History Library microfilm number (FHL #), item number, image number and record number. Some of the microfilms have been digitized and are viewable online. If this is the case there will be a link to the microfilm in the record.

If a record was not microfilmed by the LDS then contact the district coordinator for the town of the record for information on obtaining copies of an original record.
