Ostropol Jews in

There are  three new sources of Russian Jewish birth records.  Two are for boys only, because the government was using the records  to track them for conscription. One can be used if you know the town, your family was from, even if you know the baby was born somewhere else or born in a town whose birth register no longer exits.  The second will be able to be  used if you are looking for a boy born anywhere in Volhynia guberniya and you know the last name.  The third, which had long been known, but is now being indexed  is the birth register  for the town where actually born, if it was  preserved in an archives.

​The image above is from the Chudnov Metrika for 1897, 1899, 1900, 1902, 1904. It shows a boy named Peisakh with  father  Avrum Yankel, a meshane (his  tax status) of Ostropol, son of Shaya-Volf Breiman. The mother's name was Shayna Reisya. Many of the mothers are listed with their father's names and maiden names.  A full image would give the date on the Julian and Hebrew calendars,  and would be faced with a Hebrew page.  Thanks to Alex Krakovsky for publishing the Russian language images of the  Metrika.
















This image above was created by  Deborah Glassman  from research material in the Volinski Vedemosti. Each of the boys was born either in Ostropol or another Russian Empire town, each was reported with his father, a birth date, and a specific place of birth. Those born in other towns were born to fathers legally resident in Ostropol. 

Help me find the resources to acquire and search these sources, to gain images and to index them. Recently,  just for the year 1875, I found info on all of the registered Jews in specific tax classes - i.e. guild rank members for other towns in Novogrod-Volinski district and StaroKonstantinov district, and a list of 125 Jewish Meshanin of Ostropol for 1875!!! I also found a list of Boys born in 1874 whose fathers were from Ostropol.  I have lists of court registers with the names of the disputing parties, tax lists by town, real estate transfers- all with Jews as the parties and from towns around Ostropol and the neighboring communities. ​ I need time to read and analyze as well as index all of these different kinds of source material.

So I am posting lists here and on kehilla sites with the help of their webmasters, with some information obscured. When you fill in the form telling me what you want and then click on the button to pay, I will send you the full material on the person cited.  This supports on-going research in original records for everyone.
