I am looking for ane records related to my GF and GGF in Berdyansk and Melitopol areas (UEZD) in Taurida Gubernia from 1870 on.
I mean metric records or any other types of information.
My GGF Gersh Abramovich GIRSHOVICH worked as a local paramedic in Halbshtadt (Molochansk after 1914) in Berdyansk Uezd from 1873. I definitely know that in 1919 he was already a pensioner.
His son Elkhonon GIRSHOVICH (other given names Ilya, Khonon) was born in this area in 1880-1885 and died circa 1924 in Melitopol. I have his photo made in Tokmak (then Bolshoy Tokmak) - a town in a few km from Halbshtadt.
Since my grandparents divorced circa 1917, I don't have any other information about GF and his family. The most burning questions are:
