Documents from Volyn, Ukraine #ukraine #records


For some time I am trying to find documents of the GOJER and FERZSTUT families of Horokhiv and Berestechko from the province of Volyn, Ukraine. So far I was not able to find any documents for those families.

Lately, I contact Artur Aloshyn who is a researcher and the owner of the website On his website's blog, he indexes some resources that were not indexed before and are not online. Among those are Lutsk Prostitutes 1932/1933, Voter registration 1938 of Lutsk, Ustyluh, Kyzylyn, and Hotokhiv, List of students of the Lutsk Jewish Gymnasium more.

It took me over 10 years of research and now with the assistance of Mr. Aloshyn I have the first document that lists Lejwi (Levi) and Basia GOJER on a document from Hocokhiv - the Voter List of 1938 had their names, addresses, year of birth, and occupations.

The lesson here is don't give up, even though sometimes it seems that there are no documents that survived, many are just not been indexed or scanned yet.
