Volhynia Documents and Donor Match #ukraine


At one time or another, all researchers with family in Volhynia Gubernia
have complained about the dearth of documents available for our families.
A few months ago we announced that, under the auspices of Ukraine SIG, we
had begun a project to acquire and translate 12 documents >from the CAHJP
related to towns in the vicinity of Polonnoye, including some in
Novograd-Volynskiy, Starokonstantinov, and Zaslav districts of Volhynia.

We have now acquired the documents, and have partial translations
for three of them. To continue the work, we need more funding. A generous
donor has offered to match all donations to our project made between Oct 20
and December 31 of this year, up to $2450.00. If we can raise this amount
we would be able to continue the work of translating, indexing, and posting
these documents for all to use.

If you would like to contribute toward this project please go to the
Ukraine SIG JewishGen-erosity page at
Select the project "Acquisition and Translation of Records of Seven Towns
in Polonnoye, Ukraine" and make your tax deductible donation. Any amount
will be very welcome and will qualify for the match. When you have your
receipt, please e-mail it to me at greenst@comcast.net, so that I can track
our contributions and recognize your gift. Donors of $100.00 or more will
be eligible to receive spreadsheets of the translated documents when they
are available, and before they are posted to the Jewish Gen site for general
