I've posted a transcription of a draft notice for what is now
Belarus from an August 1876 issue of the Minsk Vedomosti
(official newspaper) at:
Belarus was then part of the Russian Empire. The list gives the
names of 228 men who were subject to the Russian draft in 1876.
Communities named include Bobruisk, Parichi, Kamen, Pobolovo,
Kazimirovo and Glusk.
Roughly half of the men on the list are registered as "Hebrews,"
the rest as Christians and "Old Believers."
I've cross-posted this message to soc.genealogy.slavic, but I
haven't posted it to soc.genealogy.jewish because I'm tired of
playing the game "Guess why the moderator will bounce your post
today." If you know anyone interested in Belarusan Jewish
genealogy, you might let them know about my site.
