Custom Searches
I will do Custom Searches of the Newspaper of Record  for Volhynia Guberniya. You need to give me a thirty day lead time in which to order the materials. When this is a search for a male birth or military call-up, I will search a 2yr period around a date you provide. Normally 60.00 USD for one two-year search,  sold in a package of 180.00 for four searches, a sixty dollar savings.
I will do Custom Searches of Imaged Birth and Death Metrika where I have those registers and where you specify a two year period. There is no guarantee that the material will be present in a birth register if it has not been previously indexed. 

Family Summaries ​​
Ask me about a family summary on  your ancestors if I can connect them to their  own ancestors named in the 1834 Revision List. You get all of the family members we have identified, images of the original documents on which they appear from 1834 towards our time, information on who registered their surname in Ostropol in 1805, and a list of records so far found in which they appear.

Ostropol’s Jews in Russian Empire Records 1793 -1918
by Deborah G. Glassman, copyright 2019

This article and all of the articles and indexes  linked on this page are copyright and may not be used without the written permission of the copyright holder.

This Section of the Jewish Families of Ostropol website  includes records created in: the national jurisdiction of the Russian Empire,  the subordinate jurisdictions of that nation; departments and officials of that nation; and by private parties including landowners, writers, publishers, and business owners and companies held by stockholders.  It includes ; Christian ecclesiastical authorities (in their roles as landlords, lenders, presiding clergy and as de-facto officials of the Russian government, especially in departments related to conscription and marriage and divorce. It includes government mandated Jewish records  of administrative organizations and courts, as well as those created privately by letter-writers, tombstone makers, et al. It will also include Books Reviews and aids to understanding our Ostropol kinsmen of this  period and Jews across this part of Volhynia as we find and explore the materials. 

All of the articles linked in the box on the left-hand side of this page, (the one headed by the Home Page Link)  are detailed articles and records of the Russian period between 1793 and 1918. All of the  columns listed in the right hand box (the one headed by the Quarterly Columns Header Page Link) are articles that are especially relevant to this time period. 

I created this page in March 2019, simply to unite the many separate record types already found for the Russian period in the lives of Ostropol's Jews. But this page will be  expanded in May 2019 to make it a resource in it's own right. Please come back to see what we have learned and can share!

The Image Below is of the First Page of the 1834 Revision List of Jews of Ostropol, dated 25 April 1834 .
Everybody on the page is of the Tax Status Guild Merchant. A second Tax Status, Jewish Townsmen begins  eight pages later. Everybody on the left hand side of the page is male. Everybody on the right side is female. Surnames on this page of Ostropol Jews with the tax status of  Guild Merchant are: Rutberg; Oks; Bresman, Kirzner-Blumberg; and Blumberg.
