Re: Info for Kupel Records #ukraine

Hi Marilynn,

Try writing to the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People
(at the National Library of Israel, Hebrew University, Jerusalem). Ask
if they have or can obtain Kupel records. Yochai Ben-Ghedalia is the
Director ( If they do have records, then write
to Janette Silverman, Ukraine SIG's Coordinator and ask her to include
Kupel in the next request for documents that she sends to the Central

Also, check Miriam Weiner's website ( She lists birth
records in Khmelnitsky Archives and Census records in Zhitomir Archives
(as well as Census records that were in the Kamenets Podolskiy Archives
before the fire there). You then can write to the Archives to get
pricing for the records you need.

Finally, for a long shot, check the searchable (and downloadable)
Kremenets Concordance (Master Name Index) at

This is an index to all of the documents/records translated by our
Kremenets group. It currently has almost 180,000 entries, including 157
entries for people who were registered in Kupel. Do a town name search
for "Kupel".

Best wishes, and Happy Chanuka,

Hi Everyone,
I've been trying to find Birth, Marriage, Death Records for Kupel, Ukraine.
Most of my Paternal family came >from there and I haven't found anything on
Kupel on the JewisGen website. I don't even know in which region in the
Ukraine that those records would be found. I am aware that there is a Kupel
Shetl website, and I have been in contact for a long time with them, but
they do not have access to any records. I would appreciate any help from
fellow researchers. Thanks
so much and Happy Channukah!

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Any vital records that exist for Kupel are most likely to be in the Ukraine State Archives in
Khmelnystkyi. They have not been filmed to date. For more information on what is
