Ritavas


CENSUS LISTS OF RESIDENTS - 1895-97


 
There was one All Russian census that included Lithuania. This was the census of 1895-97.  Portions of this census have survived, and are kept in the State Historical Archive in Vilnius.  Howard Margol and Peggy Mosinger Freedman have taken the initiative to acquire a copy of that part of the census which related toLithuania and have it translated.

One of the surviving portions contains details of 101 families living in Ritavas, but  not all of the census relating to Ritavas has survived, as other sources indicate that there were over 200 Jewish families in the shtetl at the time.  What follows is therefore not the complete census for Ritavas.

The following table is an  extract from that portion.  The format has been slightly changed in that details of the street in which the family lived, and the owner of the house, appear in the original in adjoining columns, but it has not been possible to get all these columns on to the webpage.  In order to retain information, these details are shown here as separate headings.   The order in which the names were recorded has been preserved.

Abbreviations used in the column headed "Relat." (Relationship): 
h = head of household
hwif = householder's wife
hson = householder's son
hdau = householder's daughter
hserv = householder's servant,   and so on.
