A New Look at the 1883 and 1884 Tax Lists



Ages in the 1883 and 1884 Tax Lists

The Tax Lists of Lyakhovichi were among the earliest records donated to JewishGen by the efforts of the Lyakhovichi Special Interest Group. But ten years later, we are still learning about the data contained in them. We have learned that their sequence is tied to the order of the Revision Lists and that the first 250 taxpayers recorded as regular taxpayers, not deputies or electors, appear in the same sequence and order as they do in the 1850 Revision List. That let us determine the relationships between men of shared surname in the Tax List as well as understanding their connection to families long resident in the town. We have also since learned that the column titled "Tax 1" in the material donated to JewishGen, had a different function entirely. It is only given for Deputies and Electors, and is in fact the age of those men. This was first verified last year when the 1834 and 1850 Revision Lists were made available, and it is completely sustained by the information in the 1874 List of Lyakhovichi Males and the 1859-1884 Revision List Supplements.

Why are there no ages for the regular taxpayers? We know Russian law required proofs of different ages for voting, for representing voters, and for administering tasks of the community. The proof of age of a deputy or an elector may be tied to that, but we have only the facts, not the reasons behind them, so far.

The list below puts the Deputies and Electors in age order from the youngest to the oldest, only Mikhael Leibovich Ravinovich appears without an age when the record is not otherwise damaged. Our youngest elector, a male eligible to vote for Jewish representatives of the community, is 25. He is Berko Movshov Vinograd. Our oldest member of the voting population is Yudel son of Nechemiah Sluchak. He is a reported age of 79. In the 1850 Revision List, he appears as age 52. Either his age was raised earlier to move him more quickly out of conscription ages or he is closer to 86 years of age at the time of this Tax List. Both possiblities remain open after finding that his age is reported as 80 in the 1874 List of Males.

The youngest of the Deputies is 33, there are two that age: Idel Movshov Gellin and Sholomo Vulfov Tsekhanovich. The majority of the Deputies are in their 40s and 50s, the oldest are Shloma Vulfov Galay and Govsey Khavimov Berkovich who are both 63.

I had not realized until handling the material in this way that we do not have an elector's list from 1883. We have a Deputy List from 1883, a Deputy List from 1884, an Elector's List from 1884 and a Taxpayer's list from 1884. clearly the 1883 Deputies were chosen by Electors, perhaps you have come across the list in your research?

Suggest more tools for us to use with these Tax Lists. Help us learn more!
