Ukraine SIG #Ukraine You can help us collect Ukrainian vital records #ukraine


Can you help us collect vital records to be translated and indexed?

We have obtained images of more than 105,000 records of births,
marriages, divorces and deaths in nearly 50 Ukrainian towns >from
microfilms in the LDS collection. Thousands already have been translated
and indexed, soon to go into the searchable JewishGen Ukraine Database;
work continues, extracting and indexing data >from thousands more
records. I'd like to keep the acquisition inventory far ahead of the
translation effort.

Here's how you can help the Ukraine SIG Vital Records Acquisition
Project. You don't need to read or translate Russian, Ukrainian, Hebrew
or Yiddish. Basic familiarity with a personal computer, directory/file
structure and handling jpg images is all you need to learn how to use a
microfilm scanner.
