IGRA (Israel Genealogy Research Association) has posted two new articles on its
website- “Yagolnitzer Connection - Part 2”, by Jeffrey Knishbacher and “Notes
Regarding the Database-Ukraine Pogroms List of Victims”, by Ellen Stepak

“Yagolnitzer Connection - Part 2”, by Jeffrey Knishbacher

This article continues on >from where Part 1 left off to describe recent research
on a very large and prominent immigrant family in Rhode Island and beyond, many
from the area of Kamenetz Podolsk in the SW of Czarist Russia and adjacent areas
that have shifted in sovereignty between Romania, Russia, the USSR, and now
independent Moldova and Ukraine. It includes information attempting to reestablish
lost connections between members of this family, known by at least four surname
variants—Egolnitzer, Iegelnitzer, Yagolnitzer and Jagolinzer.

“Notes Regarding the Database-Ukraine Pogroms List of Victims”, by Ellen Stepak

A list of Ukraine pogrom victims was recently added to the IGRA databases on its
website. Many thousands of Jews were murdered in the pogroms of 1918-1920,
immediately following World War One, and during the Russian Revolution. This
article gives in depth information by Ellen Stepak about the list itself and her
preparation of the list.

These articles can be viewed for free for a week, after which time
only IGRA members will have access to them.
