Important note for anyone interested in Zasliai area research

Trakai District Group Project (which includes Zasliai): The Zasliai 1858-1897 Additional Revision Lists have recently been translated as part of this project which I lead. This treasure trove contains 1939 listings from the period where most of us can identify our ancestors and some of their family members, therefore providing crucial links to finding many more connections. We also recently completed the Ziezmariai 1858-1901 Add RL comprising of 1145 listings. Ziezmariai was a "sister" town, only 7 miles away, and many families had branches in both places. The 1834 and 1850 RL's for both towns also provides a wealth of information. The 1914 List of Conscripts for both Zasliai and Ziezmariai adds even more information to the mix.

Zasliai Vital Records Project: ALL the Zasliai vital records (Births/Marriages/Deaths), both filmed and non-filmed, have translated as part of this project. Over 99% of the birth records contain the paternal grandfather's name, and about 50% of them the maternal grandmother's name.

The two sets complement each other in a way that fills many voids for almost any Zasliai researcher. They also provide an extremely large database from which to make many important observations and new findings. Definitely a must-have for any Zasliai area researcher. For more information on either/both projects, please contact me, and also read about both of them at the links below.

The Top 5 Zasliai surnames are so prevalent in town that they account for a staggering 35% of all Zasliai listings when combining the totals for all the Revision Lists done thus far. The top 17 account for over 68% of the total.

SURNAME LISTS - 1858 VILNIUS REVISION LIST  
 
 
 

The 1858 Vilnius Revision List includes 990 entries for Zasliai. The following tables show every surname mentioning Zasliai. Take note that everyone in a household is included in the Revision List. So, for example, the fact a surname appears 5 times could mean it was 1 family with 5 members. This list seems to under-represent the number of Zasliai Jewish families, especially when compared to the numbers found in the 1874 List of Males above, which doesn't include females or children.
