Re: Staraya Ushitsa, Ukraine, records #ukraine

Sad. Was hoping you'd say Alex Krakovsky had scanned them. I have potential Weinhouse/Weingus cousins in a well-sourced tree in a faraway section of the geni forest, with DNA hints that need verification by genealogy. History of Staraya Ushitsa (briefly within Bessarabia's borders) says mostly Sephardic Jews of  Germanic and Austrian origins came in the late Middle Ages; my line kept moving east through Bessarabia (Briceni and Edinet), I think, until about 1900. I'd love to confirm this connection so I can reliably posit that my great grandmother's carved wooden cookie cutters of the mid/late-1800s were a Jewish folk-craft adaptation of the German Springerle tradition.
