Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Researching Abe Woolf from Zasona Russia and Kate Horoski from Kieff #ukraine


I am unsure if this is the most appropriate place to be posting
this request but felt I had to start at some point.

My great grandparents Abraham and Kate Woolf first appear in the
UK in the 1891 census. >from the 1911 census it is clear they were
married before leaving for the UK. The 1891 census shows that they
came >from the above locations. I assume that Kieff is Kiev but would
appreciate confirmation this is correct.

Zasona I have not found. Can anyone throw any light on where Zasona
might be and it's current name? Is it possibly now a suburb of Kiev?

Assuming Zasona is in the Kiev region where would the vital records
be held and are they accessible on line? If not any suggestions as to
how I might proceed with my searching would be very welcome.
