Ukraine Brick Wall MILLSTEIN #ukraine

I have been trying to find any documentation/information about my
great-grandfather Shimon MILLSTEIN. He was married to a woman named
Dora who bore him 3 sons: Harris (b. 1885 in Kiev), Joseph (b. 1888,
likely also Kiev), and Julius. Dora died and Shimon remarried Sonia
Ortenberg (bc 1870). Sonia bore him 2 sons: Isidore (born 1897 in
Akkerman, my grandfather) and Howard [or Chaim or Hesse](b.1904). In
Akkerman he was in the grain business, possibly as a grain wholesaler
and grocer. Shimon died in Russia most likely between late 1903 and
1906. My searches on JewishGen, Ancestry, Family Search have yielded
nothing for Shimon or Dora (or various spellings, etc) that fits the
dates and information I do have. Any thoughts about how I might
proceed?  Thanks for any help!

Few records from Kiev have been indexed, although both Familysearch and Alex Krakovsky's Ukraine wiki page have posted extensive record sets for Kiev.  You may have to wait until those records have been transcribed and indexed and that may be a few years.  The JewishGen Ukraine Research Division has downloaded the records from Alex's page, and once the backlog we are already experiencing from his scans slows down a bit, we will ask interested people to contribute to getting these scans indexed.

   Go to https://jewua.info/jewish-genealogy-search-at-ukraine/ and in the search box type:
Milsht*
   That will turn up a number of people that might be related to you.
   It is free to subscribe to the website, but they do charge for extra information and for documents.
I have found many of my relatives through them though.

I had a neighbor growing up in Philadelphia named Dr. David Milstein. He lived and practiced on Christian Street in the 5800 block, at the corner of 59th Street. My family always said he was a landsman, that his people came from the same town In Ukraine as ours did — Krasnoye, Podolia Gubernia, Russia ( Now Ukraine). Happy hunting,
