The JewishGen UkraineResearch Division is aware of the new agreement between Familyseach and the Ukraine State Archives to film records in the Ukraine Archives.  Alex Krakovsky has been filming records in several archives and posting them online on his excellent Ukraine wiki page for over a year.  His records are available now.  The Familysearch records will become available over the next several years, although Alex has suggested they will likely be of better quality, generally.  Contact me if you are interested in organizing a project to index the records already available or are interested in volunteering to help index them.  This is an ongoing project. Currently available scans are at https://uk.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%84%D0%B2%D1%80%D0%B5%D0%B9%D1%81%D1%8C%D0%BA%D0%B5_%D0%BC%D1%96%D1%81%D1%82%D0%B5%D1%87%D0%BA%D0%BE.  The page is in Ukrainian, but Google Chrome browser will automatically translate the pages (sort of).
