A Look at the Historical Materials available to trace Eighteenth Century and Nineteenth Century Jewish Women of Lyakhovichi

Neville Lamdan, who knows the webmaster is a great fan of his research and writing, offered this recounting of the research process for Dvora Mandel (c.1772-c.1834) as "a little piece I did for my own amusement, not sure if it is of general interest." I found the subject engaging but more importantly, I was convinced that others using his technique would be similarly rewarded. So all around this key article by Dr. Lamdan, (which appears in the left-hand column of this page), you will find on this page, lists of Jewish women in Lyakhovichi extracted from the Imperial Russian Revision Lists. We will add the Grand Duchy of Lithuania data of 1784 after that Census has been published on our website. As the page is too unwieldy with the extracts from every Revision List on this single page, you will find the links to the females named in 1834 and 1850, at three different points on this page: just above the tables, as a postscript to them, and in the lower-left-hand column with the links to all of the Revision List Pages.

Jewish Girls and Women
in the 1816 and 1819 Revision Lists of Lyakhovichi
Introduction and Data Extraction by Deborah Glassman, copyright 2008

The following table lists every female noted in the 1816 Revision List and in its 1819 Supplement. In handling this material some things soon become evident. A woman is only listed if she is the wife or daughter of a living head of household or the dependant of a man whose relationship to the head of household is given. This means that the 1816 Revision does not identify a single woman as a widow. Presumably there were many present but the census process did not yet count her in this time period. Though later lists will show widows who head households and dependant mothers, there is no such data in 1816. Women are ordered here in this customized extraction, by their first names but we provide the household number and the surname for you to find them on our full Revision List pages. Examination of those pages will show you the names of other people who had a strong impact on Lyakhovichi's married women: their spouses obviously, but also the head of household and the names of the other adults within the household. Even girls living in their father's homes were impacted by the structure of households that often put a grandfather at the head of family and multiple aunts and uncles under the same roof. This list indexes women by their first name and their middle names (a Khaya Ruchel will be listed both with the Khaya or Khaikas and with the Ruchels). Then the names are in descending order by age, allowing you to search for people who were known to be born in a specific period. Married women have another notation made to their ages in this table. The number in parentheses preceeded by a plus or minus sign, indicates the number of years difference between the woman's age and that of her spouse. So (-5) means that she is five years younger, (+1) means she is one year older, and (=) means that they were both reported with the same age. there are a number of questions about the reliability of ages on such government forms, but we can still use the data for some determinations. An age difference of more than a few years increases the liklihood of the marriage not being the first marriage for both parties. I am not sure of all the conclusions we can draw but collecting the data is the first step. The 1819 material listed below had very few relationships actually stated within it. Instead the form listed a man on one side of the page and a wife on the facing page. Daughters are distinguished by patrynomics, wives are universally given with no father's name even when living with their husbands in the women's father's houses.

Note in November 2009
When this list was first constructed we only had the 1816 and 1819 Revision Lists to work with. It was not clear until we examined the 1834 Revision List that 1819 is actually a supplement or continuation of 1816. Normally we will not find someone in the 1819 listing if they were accounted for in 1816. This means that most women will only be in one or the other and the two tables below should best be compared with the 1834 Revision List elsewhere on our pages or in the event of the discovery of either the full 1805 or 1811 Revision Lists, it can be compared backwards in time as well. Previously we had posted these two lists side by side, but it made the page rather wide, and now we find that 1816 and 1819 are a single continuous set of data not requiring side by side comparison.



We continue to expand the set of tools for learning more from the Revision Lists. You can find all of the Linked Pages at Imperial Russian Revision Lists That includes links to this page and its sequel at Jewish Girls and Women in the 1834 and 1850 Lyakhovichi Revision Lists

A Jewish Woman in 1834
This detail from a painting by Moritz Daniel Oppenheim, "Return of the Jewish Volunteer" was painted in 1834. The larger picture contrasts the young hero in modern uniform ready to serve his country's cause with the family that continued in its long-held traditions in his absence. But the detail shows a Jewish woman in her forties with children old and young, and she looks as if the artist found her vigilance in service of tradition as admirable as that of her soldier son in service of freedom. Oppenheim grew up in an observant Jewish household in the German states, and the setting is of the painting is Germany rather than the Northwestern provinces of Imperial Russia.

Tracing an Eighteenth Century Jewish Woman of Lyakhovichi:
Dvora Mandel c.1772/1773- c.1834

by Neville Lamdan copyright 2007



Dvora Mandel c.1772/1773- c.1834, Daughter of Mowsza of Sakuny, the "progenitor" of the MANDEL Family from Lechovich.

1st reference, 1784, when Dvora was recorded by name in the 1784 Census/Poll Tax List for the "Kahal" (Jewish community) of Lyakhovichi/Lechovich, together with her parents, Mowsza and Lija, and brothers, Wolff and Hyrsz (see Grand Duchy of Lithuania 1784 Census/Poll Tax List, Lithuanian State Historical Archives, Vilnius, Fond SA 3754 - as of May 2005, an unpublished document ; copy of original Census in Polish communicated to me privately).

While it has been possible to trace and document the continuous descendancies of Dwora's brothers Wolff and Hyrsz until the present day, the great question is what happened to Dvora and her offspring.

Tracing females in Russian census documents is always difficult, mainly because of surname changes at marriage. To make things worse, the Russian authorities frequently did not list the patronyms (father's names) of married women and sometimes they did not even bother to record wives and daughters at all, since they did not serve in the army or pay taxes.

In the present case, we have a certain advantage. Beyond the 1784 Lithuanian Census/Poll Tax List, the Russian Revisions (Censuses) for 1816-19, 1834 and 1850-51 for the "Kahal" of Lechovich are available and they are not too defective on the female side of the ledger. So here goes:

First, an examination of the 1816 Revision List reveals that among over 750 Jews (males and females) listed in 1816, literally just a handful were named Dwora/Dvora. Indeed, on closer scrutiny, there is only one lady who is at all likely to have been the subject, assuming that (a) she was born in the 1770's (given her father's estimated birth of ca. 1745-48); and (b) she married and remained in the "Kahal" of Lechovich, as did Wolff and Hyrsz).

That single individual is Dvora, wife of Chayim LIS (a fairly common surname in Lechovich at the time) - see 1816 Russian Revision (Census) for Lyakhovichi, in NHAB, file 333/9/220 (1816), pp. 1009-1029, entry 60. This Dvora's age in 1816 is given as 43, yielding 1772-73 as her year of birth, which fits the estimated timeframe neatly.

Addition information that can be gleaned from that same list is:

- Dvora's husband Chayim was recorded as aged 46 (loc. cit.). His father's name is given as Yevna in Russian [= Yona/Jonah in Hebrew and English).

- Dvora and Chayim had a daughter called Chana, aged 5 (i.e. born 1811).

The listing of Dvora was explored simply to see where it led - and ultimately (three Russian censuses later) a positive identification was found:

1. In 1819, a follow-up to the 1816 Revision was called for, inter alia because many Jewish children were somehow "missed" or omitted 1816 (thanks mainly to their parents' efforts to keep them out of the census). Several offspring of various LIS families in town, aged between 9 and 24, were located - see 1819 Russian Revision (Census) for Lyakhovichi, in NHAB, file 333/9/220 (1816-19), pp. 1024-45. Among them were:

- Shapsa [= a Yiddish nickname for Shabsai in Hebrew], son of Chayim LIS, aged 18 (that is, born 1800-01) - ibid, entry 67; and

- Chaya LIS, aged 16, living at the same address as Shapsa - loc. cit. It turns out that Chaya was young Shapsa's wife (see immediately below).

2. The 1834 Revision continues the story - see 1834 Russian Revision (Census) for Lyakhovichi, in NHAB, file 333/9/599 (1834), p. 969 ob.- p. 970, entry 53, which yields the following:

- Chayim LIS died in 1827. - Dvora is absent from this entry altogether, suggesting that she too was dead by 1834. - Shapsa is 34, allowing us to zero in on 1800 as his year of birth. - He is still married to Chaya, whose age was now given as 30. - No children are listed for Shapsa and Chaya; - Dvora and Chayim's daughter Chana (above) was not mentioned in this entry, suggesting that in 1834, at 23, she was married and living with her husband elsewhere.

3. The 1850-51 Revision (NHAB 333/9/491) clinches the family relationship between the MANDEL's and the LIS's, stemming from Dvora Mandel and Chayim Lis.

- Shapsa, son of Chayim, Lis (recorded by the diminutive name "Shepsel") died in 1838 (ibid. p.406, obverse). - His wife Chaya seems to have died earlier, because all mention of her was absent. - And where did Shapsa/Shepsel live before he died? In the home of two Mandel families.

The explanation for this place of residence has to be that Dvora Mandel married Shapsa's father, Chayim Lis (in about 1797) and that Shapsa, possibly as a widower, was living with his Mandel cousins until his death in 1838.

Note: there is no evidence of Shapsa and Chaya having any children, so it must be assumed that this branch of Dvora's male line stopped there. Beyond that, there is no way of tracing Dvora’s daughter Chana and whether she had any offspring.

A Jewish woman of Minsk Guberniya 1843 (or Kovno or Grodno)
The clothing of a Jewish Woman of the Northwestern Guberniyas in 1843


1912 Rosh haShana greetings
a scene in which the woman is "central" to the memory and to the painting of F. Kaseline. The men and boy's clothing are more reminiscent of Poland in the period thirty years earlier and this New Year card was marketed to the traditional (not Reform) Jewish population of Germany in 1912 which included a strong contingent of new settlers from Russia's Polish provinces.
