1895 Census – Live!

I’m currently traveling, so I hadn’t checked in at LVVA’s “Raduraksti” for a week or so. Today I visited the site, and discovered that the records for the Latvian parishes of the 1895 All-Russia Census are live and available for browsing!

I haven’t yet had the opportunity to examine them in detail, since I only spotted them while going to the website to consult a parish register quickly before heading out to do some sightseeing. But from what I can tell, they seem pretty thorough. Many parishes are listed, and the parish files that I have opened appear to contain full forms. I don’t have my Russian dictionary on hand, so I’m not sure what some of the columns mean, but I hope to get on that later this week as I take a bit of a pause to relax during the mad rush of travel.

In the meantime, I hope that those of you who have been waiting for these records to appear online are able to make use of them. Like the parish registers, they are not indexed, but the images seem to be good quality, so if you know where your ancestors lived, these records could give you good insight into their families.

Best of luck and happy research!

    I am currently translating the 1897 All-Russia Census, started on June 1895 for VISHKI.
    If your ancestors lived there, you may write to me at usdine@yahoo.fr and I shall send you the link.
