Re: Index files - ODESSA #ukraine

I went through the birth records and I could only search 1911 - 1914. If you tried going before or after, it said "page not found." Also, if you look through this, the records are arranged in English alphabetical order rather than Russian alphabetical order (for example: I was looking for my grandmother, whose last name was FAVILYUKIS. In the Russian/Cyrillic alphabet, the F (looks like the letter phi in Greek) comes after U. I found all the F records after E). If some months are missing, you'll have to go through to where the letter would be in Russian alphabetical order (I think in 1912, the records for January and February were elsewhere). Records (at least the birth records I looked at) are arranged first by first letter of the last name, then by month, and then (usually) by day of the month, though not all records gave the day of the month).

I couldn't find the birth record for my grandmother. Is it possible these records are incomplete - maybe some have been lost? Also, is it possible that not all births were recorded by the rabbinate? Odessa was pretty big even then. Is it possible there was more than one Rabbinate?
