Vital records acquisition #ukraine

Harvey Kabaker <ukrainesig.images@...>
 

To my colleagues researching family history in Ukraine,

Below is our list of the top 10 Ukrainian towns, ranked by the number of
researchers who registered in the JewishGen Family Finder and declared
their towns of interest.

As we scan microfilms >from the LDS Family History Library to collect
digital images of historical records of births, marriages, divorces and
deaths, we have given these towns priority attention. Because some
microfilms for larger towns also contain records for smaller towns in
the same district, we now have records for about 48 towns altogether.

Another factor is that several volunteers have been scanning records
from towns in which they are most interested, regardless of rank.
Eventually, of course, translators will review the records and extract
their data for public access through the JewishGen Ukraine Database.
That work is under way, and volunteers continue to scan microfilms of
Jewish vital records.

By the way, projects like this suggest why it's important to list your
families in the JewishGen Family Finder. If you haven't registered, you
may do so here:

The Top 10 Towns
For those marked (complete), we have scanned all vital records available
on FHL microfilms.

Details about projects under way for these and other towns are on the
Ukraine SIG Internet site here:

Please look during the days ahead in this forum for more information
about the vital records acquisition project, and for suggestions on how
you can help.

general grave-finding help (not specific to Ukraine) #ukraine

guy.f.levin@...
 

Shalom,

My ggf is buried somewhere in the SW Philadelphia suburbs, and my Dad
and I have called numerous area cemetery offices asking if my ggf is
buried there, but they do not see him in their databases.

I know this is the Ukraine SIG forum, but maybe you experienced
genealogy researchers can please help me - or direct me to a helpful
email forum.

E.g., what other sources, like official documents, could I check? I'm
sure that the "where is s/he buried" question is an oft-asked one.

Thanks for your time!

Roziver or Rozhiver near Kiev? #ukraine

Fred Huss
 

I am helping my wife locate her grandmother's town near Kiev. Her mother has the town name as Roziver. They're not sure if it's spelled that way, (it could be Rozhiver). I looked at google earth and found approximate names but no close matches. Anyone know if there is such a town name in that area?

Krakow records in FamilySearch #galicia

Susan Wynne <srwynne@...>
 

After much deliberation, I am re-writing my 2006 book, The Galitzianers:
The Jews of Galicia, 1772-1918. I would appreciate input >from anyone
familiar with the Krakow records in the FamilySearch database, in
particular, the census of 1870 and the military eligibility census of
1847-1850. Do they include Jews?

Of course, I'm happy to hear >from anyone who has suggestions or
corrections. I expect that the new edition should be ready in late 2014
or early 2015.
