NEW GROUP: Ekaterinoslav Area #poland

Elsebeth Paikin

Forwarded to "JRI-Poland" mailing list

I am very pleased to announce that yet another group geared to
facilitating communication between 'genners with a common interest
is now live and awaiting subscribers. With Elsebeth Paikin as
moderator, and myself (Jerry Touger) as coordinator, the Ekaterinoslav
Area Research Group is joining the long list of JewishGen hosted
mailing lists.

The Ekaterinoslav Area Research Group is dedicated to serving as an
information- gathering vehicle and clearinghouse for Jewish genealogical
as well as historical information relating to the Jewish community in
and around the city formerly known as Ekaterinoslav and now called
Dniepropetrovsk in the Ukraine. Because many Jews relocated to
Ekaterinoslav or the surrounding agricultutral colonies >from Belarus
(and many of these in turn subsequently emigrated), many of those people
already participating and also potential members will be particularly
interested in Belarus-Ekaterinoslav connections In fact, the effort to
establish this group was initiated specifically by people whose forebears
were originally >from Belarus, but later settled in Ekaterinoslav.

However there was also settlement in the area >from elsewhere in the Pale
of Settlement, and there are also people who know they have ancestors who
lived in Ekaterinoslav but do not know what prior roots those ancestors
might have had. Since these groups of ancestors no doubt intermingled
and intermarried, it makes good historical sense to embrace all of them
under the umbrella of the Ekaterinoslav area research group.

Joining this group is simple and can be done via e-mail or online.
