Location of ancestral town "Spitkokfka" #general

mitch1234@...
 

I am looking for a town in Ukraine, and all I have is the (phonetic)
spelling of Spitkofka on immigration forms, and the recollection of
my grandmother it was near Kiev, and sounded like "ship". As best I
can tell, this might be Shpikov, but I'm not sure. Any help would be
sincerely appreciated.

Thanks,

A New Book - White Schooldays #general

A New Book: White Schooldays - Coming-of-Age In Apartheid South Africa

by Ismé Bennie

Ismé Bennie reflects on her life of privilege as a young white Jewish
South African growing up during the tumultuous and unjust Apartheid era.

As a young girl she was not aware of how advantaged she was, she was a
child at play under the South African sun.

White Schooldays is a reflection on the relative normalcy of Bennie's
life in the 1940s and 1950s -- a life filled with her pets, family,
school and friends. As a Jew, Bennie was a minority within a minority,
but she still enjoyed the benefits of life as a white South African.
Her everyday experiences stand in stark contrast to the suffering of
the black community, the violence and discrimination that went on
around her.

White Schooldays is Bennie's homage to a way of life that was special
and beautiful for those who were privileged to lead it. In this
collection of pieces, with a strong Jewish thread running through it,
she paints a picture of daily life as she remembers it.

But these memories are underscored with the political reality of the
times!

Exciting News for Ukraine Researchers - with a caveat #ukraine

Chuck Weinstein <cmw521@...>
 

Ukraine SIG has an ongoing project to acquire scans of LDS microfilms
containing vital and revision list records of the Jewish communities of the
areas we serve. We currently have a large number of records scans for
places for which there are no Town Leaders. A Town Leader would coordinate
the creation of a project to translate and then transcribe these records
into Excel spreadsheet templates for inclusion into the JewishGen Ukraine
database. JewishGen can create a fundraising project to get funds to hire a
translator, or a Town Leader can try to find volunteers to do the
translations. Transcription is done by volunteers. Ukraine SIG can help a
Town Leader by arranging to send a blast Email to all researchers who are
listed in the JGFF for a specific town.

However a Town Leader decides to do this, nothing can happen without a Town
Leader. As a Town Leader, you serve as a point of contact for information
about a town and are also encouraged to create a KehilaLinks page for your
town. We have a number of volunteers who can help.

The towns for which we have records but no Town Leaders include the
following:

Aleksandriya (Volhynia gubernia), Chigirin, Gostomel, Kamenka (Kherson
gub.), Kanev, Kerch, Korop, Korsun, Lebedin, Makarov, Matusov, Medvedovka,
Mokraya Kaligorka, Motyzhin, Novomoskovsk, Olshana, Orlovets, Popilna,
Rotmistrovka, Rzhishchev, Tagancha, Vyazivok, Yevpatoria, and Zlatopol.

Please let us know you can help. If you have an interest in one of these
towns, you may find yourself transcribing documents of your own family
history. Let me know.
