Nikolayev, Ukraine -- Forging, Deception, and Translation #general


Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

For some weeks, several people have helped me translate some fascinating
1800s documents regarding my LIS family in Nikolayev, Ukraine (the
Nikolayev in Podolia, near Proskurov; not the Nikolayev near Odessa, on
the sea).

I have communicated with each person who has helped, but since the
documents tell a fascinating tale of deceit and trickery (to very good
end, I think!), perhaps other researchers will be interested in these
documents.

Together, this information may indicate (1)why it can be a challenge to
find family units in the 1800s and (2)the great value of archival
documents. I have (accurately I hope!) combined several different
translations of these documents:
