JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen FW: info on the Ukraine #general

Hello JG'rs,
I'm forwarding this message on the off chance that any member searching for
family in any part of the Ukraine may find some new address or site they
haven't had before. I hope this may be of help to many of you; it has given
me some new contacts.

Ruth Grant
Scarborough, ME

I just added your name to my mailing list. You should be getting a message
from Listbot soon. They'll send you a message to confirm you want to be on
the list.

My second message hasn't been archived yet, but I'll summarize it for you.
I added a forum where you can correspond with other people searching for
missing relatives. The forum address is
http://www.dejanews.com/[LB=http://www.geocities.com/~familyunite/,LBT
http://www.geocities.com/~familyunite]/group/dejanews.members.fam.vera1.lost
-family

I added a related websites page that lists 5 websites that offer free add
postings about missing persons. That page address is
http://www.geocities.com/~familyunite/linkpage.htm.

I also told about a program I saw on Dateline NBC about a woman who found
her brother, who was missing for 53 years, through the Red Cross.
Ironically her brother was Ukrainian like your family members. If you're
still having troubles with your local Red Cross, then write directly to the
Red Cross in Kiev.

Here's the first message of my mailing list:
