Re: How to find UKRAINE birth and marriage records #ukraine #records #russia


Happy New Year,  I am researching my paternal grandfather and his parents. Harry/Hersz PASTERNAK , born in Kuty 1904  Siblings Reisel Pasternak born Kuty 1906, Scheindel Pasternak born 189 , Ruben Pasternak, b 1913 and Jutta Pasternak born 1919.  Parents names may be Ida Reif and Leo Pasternak (from their US death certificates of children) . I can not find any vital records for any of the above in Ukraine etc.  
I believe no vital records survived from Kuty but wondering if there are any other next steps I can take.  Since Kuty is a border town and was a war zone around 1918- 1920, many left for a time, and  parents may have died  elsewhere. Would hiring a person on the ground be useful or a fools errand?
