If you check out our website at http://www.jewishgen.org/ukraine & click on "Archive Addresses", it will take you to:
The address listed for Chernigov is as follows:
Chernigivska oblast (ie: Chernigov)
2, Frunze St., Chernigiv, 250006
Tel.: +380 (4622) 7-41-17
You should also go to the Routes to Roots site, & read through the
comprehensive information that has been put together for Ukraine (including
archive addresses). The URL is: http://www.rtrfoundation.org
The archives do not have "birth certificates", but they may be able to find
