  • Example of information in newspaper articles:

The database shows Abram Gurvits listed twice once as Abram Gurvitz - 48 and then Abram Gurvitz  - 57. That he is listed twice means there are two articles that contain his name. The numbers 48 and 57 are for my reference.

Here is information extracted from those two articles:

Abram son of Jossel Gurvitz was owner of the house in Kaunas in 4th quarter of the town on Moskovskaya street. He is mentioned in the list of electors in the State Douma (Russian Parliament) in 1907, published in the supplement to newspaper "Kovenskiye gubernskije vedomosti" # 50, 1907.
