Guberniya (губе́рния IPA: [gu'bʲɛrnʲɪjə]) (also gubernia, guberniia, gubernya) was a major administrative subdivision of the Imperial Russia, usually translated as governorate or province.
A guberniya was ruled by a governor or (губернатор, gubernator), a word borrowed from either Latin gubernator or Greek kybernates.
By the reform of 1775, subdivision into guberniyas and further into uyezds (уезды) was based on the amount of population, and the term "guberniya" was replaced by the synonym of Russian origin: namestnichestvo (наместничество), sometimes translated as "viceroyalty".

 Notes on Guberniya District Maps
Following the outer perimeter of blue yields the Guberniya boundary.
In some places a district will be partially clipped from view, but not importantly so: if your town is in the clipped area, it is possible to tell which district it was in.
Caution: It is incorrect to assume that Guberniya boundaries, district boundaries, or district towns (and therefore district names) never changed throughout the 19th century.

 Rabbi Electors
As you may have noticed from our records, in the elections of the rabbi of the main town of each uyezd participated the representatives from all the communities of this uyezd, at least in the beginning of the 20th century.
The elections were held by the community, but under the control of local administration and police, and the results had to be confirmed by Kaunas guberniya administration - among the records of this Kaunas guberniya administration are separate files on these elections for various communities where we find these lists.
These files also usually contain various correspondences on this matter: reports of the local police on the candidates - usually they are said to be literate in Russian, having no criminal record, and are loyal to the government.

The first military settlement was established by Count Alexei Arakcheyev in 1810 in the Klimovichi uyezd of the Mogilev guberniya.
Military settlements were being created on fiscal lands (казённые земли), which would often provoke riots among the state-owned peasants (казённые крестьяне), like the ones in Kholynskaya and Vysotskaya volosts of the Novgorod guberniya in 1817 and among the Bug Cossacks in 1817-1818.
Alexander I, however, stood his ground and announced that "military settlements will be created, even if we have to pave the road from Petersburg to Chudov Chudovo; some 100 km away from Petersburg with dead bodies".
