Re: How to make a payment to a Ukrainian Archive? #records #ukraine #translation

The cheapest way is to ask if anybody on this site is going there on a holiday this year or after travel resumes.  It might be a long shot but worth trying.  6 or 7 years ago there was a similar request for a payment to Pilsen from somewhere in England, my wife and I were that year linking Poland and Italy on our 4 or 5 week holiday in Europe and offered to make the payment by handing over the cash, if it was deposited in our account.  This worked well and added interest into a stop which could have been anywhere in a wide area. Our hotel turned out to be 2 doors from the office and opposite an ATM and we were shown a delightful old Synagogue into the bargain as well as saving an unknow genealogist a significant amount of money.

Subject: [] How to make a payment to a Ukrainian Archive? #ukraine #translation #records
Hi Siggers,
   Recently I sent for the death record of my great-grandfather and received the attached invoice.
I do not speak Ukrainian and I cannot figure out how to go about making the payment.
  My bank tells me that in order to make a wire transfer I need the bank's Swift number and their address. Additionally I need the organization's name, address, and account number.
  So my questions are:  Are all these things on the invoice and which is which?
  Also, my bank wants to charge me $35 for the wire transfer whereas the invoice is for only about $4. Does anyone know a less expensive way to send the money? When I googled about it MoneyGram came up. Does anyone have experience with them? Would I need all the same info?
  Thanks in advance for your help.
