Latter-Day Saints Church Microfilms (Family History Library)

The Mormons (LDS) microfilmed Revision Lists for all districts of Bessarabia (now in Moldova Republic and Ukraine) in 2003, at the Moldova State Archives in Chisinau (Kishinev). There are a total of 292 microfilms for Bessarabia, which can be ordered and viewed at any of the LDS Family History Centers, as well as at the Family History Library (FHL) in Salt Lake City. Some microfilms contain all Jewish records; others may have only several images dedicated to Jews. Of the 292 microfilms of the Bessarabia Revision Lists, 30 definitely have Jewish records in them, and possible more. All of the lists are in the Russian language (Cyrillic alphabet).
