Dear Kremenets District Friends,

On behalf of the Kremenets Board, I wish you a very Happy New Year.

I have a special gift for all of our Contributors. Our KDRG Contributors website has been reorganized a bit and now has ALL of the vital records and revision list translation spreadsheets that have been completed so far. They are downloadable from:

You will see new links in the "Navigation" menu (left side of the page). These point to: "Translation Spreadsheets, RS" and "Translation Spreadsheets VR".

The vital records spreadsheets page allows you to download the following UNEDITED, pre-release spreadsheets.

These are not yet in either the Master spreadsheets nor the Concordance. They will not be released to the general public until they are fully processed.

In addition, the following vital records translation spreadsheets are included in various Master spreadsheets and in the Concordance. The birth, marriage, divorce, and death Masters are downloadable from the "Master Documents and Spreadsheets" section within the Navigation menu in the left sidebar.

The following UNEDITED, pre-release revision list translations (Russian censuses) are also on the KDRG Contributors website.

The initial 7-digit number is the LDS FamilySearch Microfilm Number.

In addition, the following edited revision list translations are included in the Revision List Master spreadsheet and in the Concordance.

The Master is downloadable from the "Master Documents and Spreadsheets" section within the Navigation menu in the left sidebar. The entries from these spreadsheets also are in the Concordance at:

These revision lists cover most of the towns of the Kremenets district. For example, FHL film 2375506 has census entries for Belozirka, Katerburg, Kremenets, Lanovtsy, Podberezhtsy, Radzivilov, Rakhmanov, Shumsk, Vishnevets, Vyshgorodok, and Yampol ... all are towns that were in the Kremenets district. To identify which revision lists are available for each town, please see the "Document Acquisitions and Status" spreadsheet. It is downloadable from the Kremenets KehilaLinks website at:
Use the hyperlinked index near the top of the document to jump to the Census listing for each town.

Your donations have made it possible to bring all these translations to you. If you have not yet contributed, please note that the KDRG Contributors website is available only to researchers who have contributed to our work in the past two years. Please contact me ( if you have contributed but need help accessing the website.

Later today I will send you another message reporting on our recent matching donations campaign. For those of you who have not yet made a donation, that message will include instructions for donating and for getting access to the KDRG Contributors website.


Best wishes to all, and Happy New Year,
