My name is Meryl Rizzotti. My maternal grandmother was
from Shpola that is also known as Zvenigorodka. Mostof the family immigrated either before or around the
turn of the century. When I was at the conference, I
photocopied ALL of the birth, marriage and death
records that were on the films at the Mormon Library.
I have about 10 lbs of papers. However, I do not read
Cyrillic, Hebrew or Yiddish. The copies are pretty
clear. If anyone is in the Los Angeles area and is
interested in either helping me translate or would
like to look at these records I would be delighted.
