> This is my first post on JewishGen. I am looking for any information on the family of Israel Jacob Wainer and his wife Rebecca Gilgore who emigrated from the Ukraine (probably Zhitomir/Zhytomyr) to Delaware (USA) in approximately the 1880s.


Welcome!  If you can give us an idea of what you know and where you have looked so far, we can help you better.  Records for Zhitomir are on line at, but they are in Russian and have not yet been indexed.  The website is in Ukrainian, so I would recommend using a browser such as Chrome, which will automatically translate the website, sort of, for you.
