​​ Special Recruiting Documents of Ostropol’s Jews: 
Newly Translated Sources for Ostropol families
by Deborah Glassman, copyright 2018

Alex Krakovsky who has so wonderfully been putting original Russian Empire records online from  Ukraina,  included the images from a book of Miscellaneous Recruiting Documents  from Novogrod-Volinski District in the 1850s. All of the documents in that bound volume, were constructed in the 1850s with the same forms that had been used for Revision Lists ( a kind of Russian Census) for the previous fifty years.
But the lists were odd. Instead of being hundreds of pages for  a single Jewish community, with five or six families on each page, they are often made up of one page, or even just one person, a young man. Even the title page for that document, and the header on the page, specifies that one individual. There is another kind that of document that again uses the Revision List forms, but instead of giving you data on full families with heads of household and their dependent males on one side of the ledger page, and their female dependents on the other, it is primarily a list of young men or boys. Both of these situations quickly bring you to the crux of the matter. In both cases, a young man or a boy (sometimes just a couple of years old) is the focus because these are really conscription documents, hiding under the appearance of Revision Lists.
The documents are not called “Reviskie Skazky,” the name translated as Revision Lists, but rather as “Rekrutzkie Skazky” and though some comparable materials we will utilize, were taken from Revision Lists, this is really new territory for us.

*** There are “Correction Reports" with young men cited by the household numbers which their families had last used  in previous Revision Lists, with notes that the potential recruit was missed in that document.
*** There are Examination Documents, i.e.: that a young man was examined and exempted; or examined and recruited; or examined and provided  a Jewish substitute.
*** A Draft Lottery was conducted among a group of legally resident Jewish “cemistvo” (A cemistvo, was a kind of family corporation where every one that shared that surname in that single town, was obligated for the financial and legal obligations of those with whom that name was shared.) of Ostropol. Each cemistvo would have to provide a list of the eligible young men and boys who shared their surname in Ostropol. Then there would be a lottery selection from among the candidates for recruitment across all of the cemistvos which were eligible to be included that year by the rotation used. If a member of a particular cemistvo was chosen, the family would be exempt from selection again for another term of years.  Then there would be a lottery selection from among the candidates for recruitment across all of the cemistvos which were eligible to be included that year by the rotation used. If a member of a particular cemistvo was chosen, the family would be exempt from selection again for another term of years. From hands-on examination of these lists for Ostropol, we see  some facing the draft  twice in a span of five years ( 1837 and 1842) and another group of cemistvos with a nine  year span between 1849 and 1858. There were other varying lengths, with the closest being four years. 
***If Exemption was because an older brother had been recruited, or because a substitute had been acquired, the sibling or substitute was usually named with the year of the conscription or enlistment. These were permanent exemptions for these reasons, the excused party would not be in jeopardy of possible recruitment again in the future, once exempted.
The different types of documents served different purposes.
***The documents of corrections, clarified who had died since the previous Revision List, and those whose age was incorrect (and so could postpone service for a year or two), and those who had been reported with the wrong family. They state whether the Jew was called up in their own right as a member of their family unit, or was a substitute. The service of any Jew gained some immunity for their siblings but a substitute’s service gained immunity for his own siblings, not for the siblings of the man he replaced. However this benefit needed to be actively sought as some of the substitutes were entered without their surnames, they were only “important” relative to the cemistvo (family surname corporation) that they relieved from the draft.
***There are several lists that are retrospectives. Created long after the year that some of the Jews were conscripted, they was nevertheless reported by name by year, by decade, by time period, and since the last Revision List.  This let the officials utilize the community’s rotation, and it let them exempt siblings by the service of a brother. It provided clarity on those who might be reported as recruited by the family when in fact they had just made themselves unavailable for a Revision List.  
There might be more than one late retrospectives covering the same early conscription period, and the different documents can augment the information received earlier by adding a different household number or relationship.
 ***Lists incorporated into Revision Lists, provided the full accounting required for any male who had been enumerated in a previous year. Each listing showed a man’s current age if he was still living or noted that he had died, changed legal residence, fled, was missing, or had been recruited. Each of those items was accompanied by a specific year and for recruits could be checked against a separate record. Some of these records confirmed information in the separate Recruit Lists and some gave alternate information.
Other  documents in other sources not in these bound registers 

Call-up lists. Those who were required to report for examination if by age or appearance they had passed their twenty-first birthday. These were based on the metrika (birth registers) that were supposed to be in place since 1835, but were not generally in use until the 1850s. Thus the phrasing “by examination [of the registers] or by appearance [physical evaluation of the man and possibly some witness testimony]. These were kept in several Imperial Ministries and also published in the guberniya gazette for Volhynia, the Volinski Vedemosti.  I have just acquired the 1880 list for Ostropol and the towns of Novogrod Volinski district and the towns of Starokonstantinov district for 1880, from that Volhynian gazette. They showed just two people for Ostropol that year. Will be adding new lists through the research year 2019.

Exemption lists. These were separate reports by municipalities and Police officials. I have only seen them in documents by particular towns and have not seen those for Ostropol. They may have been published in the Volhynian gazette but I have not seen any examples yet for Volhynia. If they are there, I will find and publish them in 2019.

Exemption could be because:
1)of being an eldest son,
2)by being disabled,
3)by the previous enlistment of a sibling,
4)by the provision of a substitute,
5)by having completed military service
6) by being a member of the Guild Merchant tax status class. However, Guild Merchants (kuptzy) do appear in Rekrutzkie Skazkie lists with their names, their fathers, and their tax status specified. They need to be individally  examined as they vary widely in content)

Lists inside of Revision Lists. I would like to gain access to those of 1851, 1858, and 1874. There was no recruitment in Revision Lists prior to 1834. I have the list from 1834’s Revision List.

Discharged soldiers.
I do not have any of these discharge  documents at present.  Ostropol men who served in the Russian army are so designated in the birth records of their children and in their own marriage records. Many men came home and married for the first time at advanced ages as Jews did not marry while in the Army. Separate lists were also maintained for retired soldiers who had property rights outside of the norm, due to their prior enlistments. Looking for sources.

Adoption Registers. Because the Russian Army exempted from conscription, the first born son of any family, Jew or Christian, peasant or noble, Jews came up with a special solution to the 25 year enslavement of Nikolai’s time. They would ask another Jewish family in the community who had only daughters, or no children at all, to adopt their second  or later sons. Published records in the gazettes of other guberniyas showed that the status of "adopted" was often reported in the call-up lists, when the prospect was told to report for examination as to suitability for enlistment.
The records covered in the bound ledgers from the Novogrod Volinsky uyezd (that is district) of the 1850s and 1860s, includes about thirty different towns in that area. It covers peasants, and those with the tax statuses of meshanin (that is townsmen) and kuptsy (that is  Guild Merchants). Novogrod Volinsky district’s  meshanin were divided into Jews, Poles, Germans, and Russians. Most of the documents don’t try to cover two kinds of groups at a time though Jews who are kuptsy do appear with their fellow Jews who are meshanin. I have a similarly acquired bound recruiting volume for Novogrod Volinsky of  soldiers and retired soldiers, but have not done more than a cursory scanning of it for Jews in those roles. Will review and post initial findings by Dec 2018.
The time period of these ledger-bound documents is important. The terrible Conscription Act of 1827 had forced Jewish communities into  providing more and more  Jewish men and boys for Russian military service. The child recruits were in a “training period” until they became adults, and then began their twenty-five year term of service. The adults began their twenty-five year term right away. Every year from 1827 through the early 1850s, the Jewish community was forced to pick, from their children, their young unmarried men, or their married men, those who would be sent off. As mentioned above, Ostropol’s Jews used a rotational lottery to keep the burden fair. We can see the investment which the Jewish community had in this arrangement, in an 1859 Petition to the Tsar. Thirty-eight heads of households in Ostropol petitioned for a special kind of variance, when a newcomer to Ostropol from Lyubar, who shared the surname of an already existing family in the town, arrived. They might not have joined the Ostropol-origined family in a suit that would just have protected that family (Kantor and Kantoretz)  from the financial obligations of another family with one of those surnames. But they were very much concerned with the rotation of the draft burden, and wanted the new family to be added to the rotation, not absorbed into another family’s obligation.
The documents of this ledger were created both during the hey-day of the 25-year-conscription, and as plans to end it were being made in 1852-1855. A source of information and details of the recruit pool among Jews needed to be maintained.  The  Russians wanted a firm handle on where they would find their soldiers  in the future, and three new tools were put into play by the Russian bureaucracy.  A law requiring  the creation of metrika, (that is birth registers) originally passed in the 1830s was put fully into  effect in the 1850s – that would ensure that a list of male babies would be preserved with their birth year, the place of birth, and the place of legal residence. These were bound volumes, so pages could not be added. They could filled in only by the crown rabbis elected every three years in each community, who faced very severe penalties for allowing falsification. A simple kind of mendacity was eliminated simply by requiring a bound book and totals on each page, both of which reduced the risk of late additions. A second item may not have been instituted with a specific law, but it was the reason for these “Rekrutskie Skazky” or Conscription Revision Lists.” Each listed a Jewish male who had been born before the requirement of birth registers.  Most were males under the age of common majority (age of 21) or of legal majority (the age of 24). Older men were listed with their sons and nephews for whom this was most applicable. A third item was “Corrections to the Revision Lists.” Like the full Revision Lists, these filled a page with a number of families. But each lists only a single person, his age, his current household and the most recent previous  household number. There is, as in the traditional Revision List, a second half of the page for females associated with that household. But very few men in this list are listed with the wives and daughters found on the normal Revision lists. A fourth was a series of “Reports on Recruitment.” These documents are multiple pages with multiple paragraphs each. These are not Revision List forms. Instead, like in the “Corrections to the Revision Lists” each is reported with surname and household numbers past and present, but they list the substitutes for military service, that the family sent in their stead. As retrospective historical documents, they are more prone to error the farther the date in time from the event. So for instance we can see in one of those Correction Lists - Yankel Ber Kantor son of Shaya of Ostropol is reported as having been recruited in 1837. But in the 1834 Revision List, that same Yankel Ber Kantor son of Shaya was listed as having been recruited in 1827. That one is easy to ascertain which was correct. The 1834 Revision List could not report an event that took place after April 1834 when it was compiled. So clearly, the later retrospective document places Yankel Ber in the wrong decade. There is sometimes more than one retrospective document.  So someone drafted in 1841 might be named in two or three documents, with the date misplaced in some of the later ones, but everything else matching. I have listed them all separately because repetitive documents can provide validation for information you already have, as well as new info. One of them might provide a household number tying the conscript into a previously unknown household group. One of them might tie him to his birth family and another into the family of an uncle previously not reported.
The long-terms of Jewish military service  began in 1827 and were ended early in the 1850s,  implemented and ended by the same man, Tsar Nikolai I.  Right now we only know of a few  soldiers from that period, who eventually turned up in the records of their towns of discharge to be cited as retired soldiers of Ostropol – in Vilna, Kishinev, and Brest-Litovsk.  As we start to work our way through birth registers of nearby larger communities including Novogrod-Volinski, Zhitomir,  Starokonstantinov, Zaslav, and Kiev (Kiev was the largest but farthest away), we will probably find others in their birth and marriage registers. We do know of  individual Jews who made it back to Ostropol itself, after that military impressment, but simply not getting home, took many of them out of our ability to see what happened to them next. Some, no doubt, died by disease and in conflicts. Others may have had succumbed to constant pressure to convert. But discharge in other parts of the Russian Empire, meant that healthy men who went on to marry and have children, are still largely out of our view. When they married or had children in another town, the registers in which they appeared might refer to them as discharged soldiers, former soldiers, Nikolai soldiers – all of which would replace the normal reporting that they were an  Ostropol townsman or Ostropol merchant. There Ostropol origins might occur as their fathers were named. So-and-so a former soldier, son of  Such-and-such an Ostropol townsman.
One of the recruiting document-types I mentioned above, is a special recruiting list with the name of the one person on the title page of the document, and signed by an official of  the Jewish board of Ostropol, after that one person’s info. There is a great advantage in seeing how wide spread a practice is. When I saw the first Special Revision for just one individual in Ostropol, it was for a son of Shlomo-Gersh Shayavich Kantor. I thought it spoke to a unique situation. Shlomo-Gersh was engaged in a legal dispute with other prominent members of the Jewish community of Ostropol in the same time period. So was this document the result of an activity by Shlomo Gersh or by the people who had petitioned the Tsar against him? Well, in addition to the others for Ostropol, there were at least a hundred similar documents for other Jews of the district in a three or four year period. There may also be other ledger books with more, not yet reviewed.
Nevertheless, Shlomo Gersh is also the reason, we have a unique view into the rotational and lottery system in Ostropol. A really useful book in the bibliography “Jews in the Russian Army 1827-1917” by Yohanan Petrovsky-Shtern, copyright 2009 discusses  the rotations used in communities across Russia, but Ostropol’s situation is given  a particularly detailed look in these original documents. We see it  through the lens of a petition to the Tsar in 1851 that had its beginnings in a relocation to Ostropol by Shlomo Gersh Kantor. I can’t tell if this is the first time it had happened since names were registered in 1805, but Shlomo Gersh arrived with a surname that was held by an Ostropol Cemistvo. You will see in records of Russia in the early Twentieth Century, that those who emigrated without a license, left a penalty to be paid by their kinsmen. You will see in nineteenth century Russia that if a legal decision was rendered for a creditor and the Jew who owed  the debt was not able to pay, that his kinsmen’s property could be taken instead. This document looked at the need to increase the rotation by adding another cemistvo  instead of absorbing it into an existing family. it was signed in Russian and in Hebrew characters by all of the leading cemistvo heads of Ostropol, both kuptsy and meshanin.
Miscellany – I listed the documents from which the information was derived where they had separate names or title pages, but I listed separately the witness or attestor signatures. Each lists the name of a trusted person on  the Ostropol Kahal and each name is provided in Russian and Hebrew characters. Some of the Hebrew character signatures evidence signs of being in Yiddish rather than Hebrew. The number of witnesses varied depending on the number of recruits or their families listed on the form. Surprisingly, many of the signatures of these witnesses in both Hebrew and Russian do not include a patronym, though it was the custom of both cultures. They do however provide a unique opportunity to get a signed autograph of the witness, though the Russian name alongside the “Hebrew” name was sometimes provided by the document’s scribe.

This list was constructed from a search by Deborah Glassman of Zhitomir Archives documents  archived with the Fond/Opus/Delo numbers of118-14-0195  and 118-13-1077.

The list below includes the data from the Revision List notations of recruitment as posted in the 1834 Revision List. It was extracted from my book Ostropol’s 1834 Revision List: Using the Entire List for New Info on Your Family by Deborah G. Glassman copyright 2018.
It does not include the lists we are just starting to pull from the published lists in the Volinski Vedemosti (the Volhynian gazette, the newspaper of record). I will post them separately as the collection grows.
The additional volume with details on soldiers and retired soldiers of Novogrod-Volinski district (not yet examined)  was  118-14-0118. I will come back to that document in the next few months, and if there are Jewish soldiers I will index them.

Bibliography: “Jews in the Russian Army 1827-1917” by Yohanan Petrovsky-Shtern, copyright 2009

There are 432 Names of Ostropol Jews in the Rekruitskie Skazkie Index. 

 ​Ordering Individual "Rekruitskie Skazkie" from the Index Lists 
What is in the record you will receive if you order an individual record for 18.00 USD?
The given names and surnames of the  recruit, named family members, and relationships,  the tax status of the family, whether a substitute was provided, and in what year was the call up.

Some potential conscripts are noted with their birth order, i.e. “second son, third son.” Some of the information is actually provided on heads of family with an additional  note as to the relationship to the conscript. One for instance, is described as “the daughter’s son” of the Head of Family. Many more are listed as the brother of the Head of Family while a few are nephews, step-sons, and son-in-laws.

Some of the conscripts up in the rotation, are only listed in relationship not to their fathers but to the heads of their Cemistvos. In the list below, some appear in this list with single names, but when you receive the information it will show a double given name. It was not always easy to determine what was a second given name for a conscript and what was the first of two given names for his father. Therefore  it was dropped off in this index  list and will be provided in the full report.

If a person appears to be the same party named in more than one list, I will also inform you of the additional records you might want to examine. 

An image of the part of the recruiting document with your subject can also be provided.

List for Digital Search of the Index of Recruiting Records for Ostropol. All of these people are named in the Rekruitskie Skazkie and associated lists of Recruits and those eligible for conscription. Some are not the recruits but are others cited in their records. This is not in strict alphabetical order and the "repeats" are people who appear in more than one document. Some only seem to to be repeats as they are different parties with different patronyms. A father may appear with more than one son. A head of a cemistvo may appear with more than one member of his family. A retrospective record may cover the same period covered in an original record  or in another retrospective.​​
