Chernigov Guberniya Map & Index

The basis for this map is an original Russian map published in 1910. The names of more than 1,100 cities, towns and villages have been transliterated into the Roman alphabet. I have included an index (in Cyrillic and Roman alphabets) of all of the towns and cities that appear on the map; those in Russian have been converted to post-Revolution orthography. The index is a work-in-progress.

Please note that I found it difficult to discern on the original map the differences in the font sizes used to designate towns of fewer than 1,000 inhabitants, and those having a population of 1,000 - 2,000 inhabitants. There may, therefore, be some inaccuracies in that regard.

Be advised that I am not a cartographer. This map is intended only to serve as an aid to family researchers.
