Family from Berdichev area #ukraine
My paternal side, the Waldmann, Franz and Blau family, apparently
came >from Berdichev, now Ukraine, but in the Russian Empire when they
left starting in 1891. How can I find the census, tax poll records,
Metrical books or Cadastral records so that I can actually locate
these family records. The family "lore" was that great grandmother
Rebecca Franz (maiden name Waldmann) came >from what she said was
"Bedicheva" in "Russia". I have not been able to find anything
already translated (like the Poland-JRI for my Galician side) into
English that I can actually read.
Any help would be appreciated. I was able to locate some Russian
language Metrical references on the LDS site, but that is about all
and I have not ordered the film nor figured out how to translate
these without the services of someone who is sitting next to me
during the microfiche search.
Thanks in advance,
