1910 VOLOGDA PROVINCE: JEWISH RESIDENTS



1910 VOLOGDA: JEWISH RESIDENTS IN VOLOGDA PROVINCE
(from Vologda Provincial Gazette—1910, #34)
The residents’ list is long and is in Russian. It begins at the subtopic, "список проживающих вологодской губер евреев" ("List of Jews Living in Vologda Gubernia").

If you don’t read Russian why not try your hand at manually translating the information by using a virtual typewriter and typing what you see in the article. You can use Google’s:
As you type in Russian (or any other language) in the left box, you will see the translation, in the language of your choice, in the box on the right.

One of the difficulties in trying to read old Russian publications is that  some of the Russian characters have not been in use since 1918 (ex. “i”, “v”); and a few seem to be pronunciation aides. You can type into Lexilogos’ virtual multilingual keyboard, then copy/paste the Russian word or words into the Google box mentioned above, in order to translate. (Lexilogos has more letters available than Google).
