The lists contain the names of all taxable persons from each city, town, village, or estate arranged by household, giving the relationship to the head of house and ages. Many volumes are preceded with an index. The text of these records was written mainly in Russian (Cyrillic). These records identify family groups, relationships, and ages at the time of the census.
