I would like to ask for a translation of the text written in Hebrew. It was published in a newspaper from 1872 in the town Zatishye, in Ukraine. It refers to my Gurevich family. Thank you very much. Eliana Aizim

7/15/2014 2:18 AM I see only Dober Hurewicz [gurewicz] and his wife in the list.
7/16/2014 8:51 AM the first few lines say: "Here are the names of volunteers (in modern Hebrew - donors):
From Zatchie colony and from Halibe Darivke (?)colony, the counties/places of settlements of Bnei-Yisrael(meaning Jews) who work their land in Yekaterinaslavske guberna colony-Zatchie."
Then there is the list of names and what are apparently sums of money. The Hebrew letters after most of the numbers seem to be Kof-Aleph, which could maybe mean Kopecks? I'm guessing, because the Hebrew letters Resh-Vav-Bet that seem to follow other numbers could be an acronym for Ruble. (There are 100 kopecks in a ruble and the numbers in thr beginning of the text probably refer to kopecks).The name Hurevitz (Gurevich?) is on the list of 1 ruble donations. The cause for making the donations is probably mentioned earlier in the text but it doesnt appear here.
