Ukraine SIG Town Pages and the MNI #ukraine

Steve Stein
 

Some time ago, I assumed the role of Town Leader for Kupel, in
Starokonstantinov district. There has not been much activity there, since
there are not any records currently available. So I was puzzled by the link
on the Town page for the "Master Name Index" (MNI) which brings up 4 "hits"
that are actually cross-references to records >from another town that happens
to mention Kupel.

Another researcher for Kupel asked me about it and I couldn't provide a
satisfactory answer. I can't seem to find a good explanation for what this
database is and how it is updated. The 4 records that I get don't seem to be
on the JewishGen Ukraine database, and the links point me back to the Town
page.

Can someone explain what the purpose of this database is and how it is
populated? And how I get to the records? Thanks.
