JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen New Ukraine SIG project - Balta vital records indexes #general

Yoni Kupchik

Dear all,

I am happy to announce a new project under the Ukraine SIG - obtaining indexes
for the Balta vital records. Balta was one of the main towns in Podolia
province during the 19th century, with a significant Jewish population. Most
of the vital records >from the Podolia province were stored in the
Kamenets-Podolsky Archives, and were lost during a fire in 2003. Fortunately,
the Jewish vital records for Balta - birth, death, marriage, and divorce
records for 1862-1918 - are stored in the State Archives of Odessa, and are
mostly unharmed. However, the information in these records remains unreachable
for many, as it is not available online.

We need translators and donations!

If you would like to donate, please go to the main page of,
click on Donate, >from the list on the right choose Ukraine SIG, and then
donate to the Balta project (2nd on the list).

Alternatively, go directly to here:

Our goal is $750 that will be paid for making copies of the indexes.

For helping with the translations please contact me at yonikupchik@....

Thank you all,

Yoni Kupchik
