Kaushany Vital Jewish Records
There are only limited number of birth, death and marriage records available from the sources I found so far. If anyone has more information, please let me know and share it with our 'Kaushany' community.
According to Miriam Weiner, Jewish Roots in Ukraine and Moldova, p.464 only following records available in Moldovian Archives:
- Census records for 1848-1853, (fond-134/2/142)
- Kahal records for 1930-1932, (fond-1520/2/11-12)
- Land record for 1941, (fond-112/1/1482-1483, 1560)
I have hired a researcher in Kishinev to find vital records of my relatives in Kaushany. They did not give me copies of birth or death ceritificates, but I received information from several Censuses in Kaushany for 1924, 1859 and 1835 for families of Kogan and Spivak. That helped me to trace some of the family back to the middle of 18 century.
Some Moldavian Archive records were copied by LDC Church and available on microfilms to view and copy. All birth and death records were digitized, translated and trascribed by JewishGen volunteers and now available at the JewishGen website. (I participated in translation of all Kaushany records among Moldavian records.)
Here is the list of birth and death records for Kaushany:
I read many other Kaushany records at the LCD library in Salt Lake City, among them Revizskie Skazki, the tax and family records of Jewish people in Kaushany. I hope that these microfilms will be digitized and soon we could start translating/transcribing records and information become available on JewishGen.
Several pages from the Revizskie Skazki records 1854 and 1869 Kaushany.
If anyone would like to help translating Revizskie Skazki or some other Jewish records from Moldova from Russian and/or Hebrew/Yiddish into English, please let me know.
