Tiraspol Uezd Revision Lists (1796-1858)
Inna Vayner, Project Leader
Reviskie Skazki (Revision Lists) —
were introduced in Russian Empire by Peter the Great.
The goal of the revision was to account for the individuals/families
subject to taxation and to identify men liable for military service.
There were ten known Reviskie Skazki taken in Russian Empire,
with the first one taken in 1719. Between the main revisions
there were "additional revisions" conducted to account for residents
who were either omitted during the main revision or those who left
or arrived into the area between the main revisions.
Only a few of the revisions conducted are applicable to Tiraspol Uezd.

Geo-political History of Tiraspol Uezd:
Tiraspol Uezd emerged as a result of Treaty of Jassy of
December 27, 1791 between Russia and Ottoman Empire.
As a result of this agreement, Russia acquired the region between
the west bank of the river South Bug and the river Dniester.
From 1795 to 1797, Tiraspol was a part of Voznesensky Governorship
of Russian Empire. From 1797 to 1802, Tiraspol Uezd
was a part of Novorossiya Governorate that was created by Pavel
the First (Paul I). From October 8, 1802 to May 15, 1803,
Tiraspol Uezd was a part of Nikolaevsky Governorship that was
created by Alexander the First. In 1803, the Governorship
was renamed from Nikolaevsky to Kherson Governorate.
It is unknown, however, what Gubernia Tiraspol Uezd was under during
the three-year span of 1802-1806. In the year of 1806,
the Tiraspol Uezd became part of Kherson Gubernia.
Today, the former Tiraspol Uezd is in eastern Moldova and
Odesa Oblast, Ukraine.
During the tenth revision (1858-1859), Tiraspol Uezd accounted for
318 localities, including Tiraspol, Grigoriopol and Dubossary.
