Census Sunday - Zutelman Family; Boremel, Russian Empire; 1858

This is the 1858 Revision List (Russian Empire version of a census) for the Zutelman family in the town of Boremel, in what is now Rivnens'ka Oblast, Ukraine, located here.  The left page are the males in the family; the right side lists the females.

The top notes that this is from 1858, and is a revision list for Volhyn Province, Dubno County, town of Boremel.  This page contains the extended family of my great-great-great grandfather, Pesach Hirsch Zutelman.

Family members include:

Men (left side):
  • Peisach Hersh Manusovich (son of Menashe) Zutelman, age 41
  • Peisach’s brother Efroim Yankel, age 39
    • Efroim’s son Khil-Manus, age 6
  • Peisach Hersh’s nephews
    • Duvid Hersh Yankelevich Shnaider (Duvid Hersh son of Yankel), died in 1857 (was 40 in 1850)
    • Duvid Hersh’s sons:
      • 1st -Nachman, died in 1857 (was 16 in 1850)
        • Nakhman’s son Mendel, disappeared (born since 1850)
      • 2nd - Moshko Yankel, 5
    • Peisach’s 2nd nephew Hersh Leibovich Geller (Hersh son of Leib), in unknown place since 1858; was 46 in 1850
Women (right side):

  • Peisach Hersh’s wife Sima Rivka, 38
  • Efroim Yankel’s wife Sura, 37
  • His (Efroim Yankel's) daughters:
    • Gitya, 17
    • Menya, 11
  • Duvid Hersh’s wife Malka, 32
  • Hersh Leibovich’s  daughter Rivka, 24
My great-great grandfather Yechiel was born about 1850, but he's not listed.  I do know that he wasn't officially registered (since he had to establish his age based on appearance in 1875--more on that in a future blog post).  His 6-year-old cousin Khil-Manus (likely Yechiel Menashe) was listed as being in the family.

  1. Manus is usually Menahem, in my experience.But if you have Menasches in the family, that's another story.

    1. Really??? Hmm. I wish there was more documentation in this town to give more insight!

  2. Note that you already have a Mendel, Nachman's son. Maybe from the same source.
