Index files - ODESSA #ukraine

Gary Pokrassa

It has just come to my attention that Alex Krakovsky has in the last few days posted scans of true index files from Odessa rabbinate - births 1908, 1911-1920, Marriage 1918-19, deaths 1919
These are in cursive Cyrillic contemporaneously written with the records and of course not digitally searchable - but index scans online nonetheless.   Up to now the only true contemporaneous index files for Ukraine I am aware of are Kyiv and Zhitomir - 
If you are persistent this can be used even if you cannot read Russian.  If you use the Steve Morse pages to convert a name in English to cursive Cyrillic you can then compare that to the index files…..
