Chernigov Guberniya Towns and Uyezd/Districts 1894/1895 

See this same list sorted alphabetically by town name.
See a map of Chernigov uzeds here.

Below find the cities, towns, settlements, and the districts/ counties/uyezd in which the towns were located when the Vsia Rossiya business directory was created in 1894/1895.
Chernigov guberniya was in existence from 1802 until 1929/1932. Around 1932, the term Chernigov oblast (province) replaced the term guberniya. During this period, towns and districts were transferred into and out of Chernigov Oblast. It's very possible that towns were added to Chernigov guberniya between 1895-1929/1932. We have not yet located a list of the Chernigov guberniya towns from 1895-1929/1932, and so, must rely on the list of towns and uyezds/districts as listed in the Vsia Rossiya directory for 1894/1895. Thank you, Bert Lazerow.
 

Uyezds (counties) began in the 13th century. They were created based on the size of the population in the various areas. The leaders of the uyezd were namestniks and later voyevodas. Uyezd were abolished during the reign of Peter the Great, but reinstated by that of Catherine I, around 1727. Sources: Wikipedia Encyclopedia and Encyclopedia of Ukraine.

** Snovskoye/Rylovichi, 6 miles from Novozybkov, 5229' 3203'. As of 1894/1895, Snovskoye/Rylovichi was not in the business directory list of Chernigov guberniya towns; it might have been in another guberniya. For now we have added it to Novozybkov Uyezd/County, but it might not belong. We're just not sure. Further research is needed.

Notes
There were three towns in Europe called Priluki. One became a district/raion, and was added to Chernigov Oblast in 1932. It was not a county/uyezd or district/raion or town within the guberniya prior to 1932, and is not listed for this reason.
