A ? after a name or word denotes that the transliteration or translation is uncertain.

All statements in square brackets are from the translator.

Since Russian has no letter h, names have been corrected accordingly, e.g., Hilel instead of Gilel; Henia instead of Genia; Hirsha instead of Girsha.

Gubernia = province

Uyezd = district
