Digitization of Jewish records from towns in the former Kiev uyezd #ukraine #russia #records

", opis (inventory) 1 is the Jewish vital records for Kiev city.  Opis 2 contains the Jewish vital records for other towns in Kiev uyezd"

I searched for ' E-Archives of the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Kyiv (CDIAK)" and got to CDIAK, but I can't see any way to get to the actual records. There are long discussions of the history and activities in English, but the rest, I assume, is in Ukrainian.

The E-Archives are at https://cdiak.archives.gov.ua/spysok_fondiv/1163/0001/0001/#lg=1&slide=1, thanks to Google, but how do I find the Opis 2 records?

An update to my previous post.  As of today (27 Aug 2021), CDIAK has now digitized up through sprava (item) 100 in fond 1164, opis 2, meaning they have added another 10 files to what has been digitized for towns in the former Kiev uyezd.  The newest 10 files represent records for the town of Dimer from 1879 to 1884.  The main archives' website hasn't posted an update on digitization for several months, so I noted these new files simply by checking the list of files in opis 2 to see which of them had links to actual digitized records.  I'll continue to check on these over the last few months of the year, and post additional updates here.  Keep in mind that with 457 items in this opis, it may take them a long time to digitize them all.

In addition to finishing the digitizing of the Jewish birth, marriage, divorce and death records for Kiev city, the E-Archives of the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Kyiv (CDIAK) has also started to digitize the Jewish vital records of other towns in the former Kiev uyezd (district or county).  In fond 1164, opis (inventory) 1 is the Jewish vital records for Kiev city.  Opis 2 contains the Jewish vital records for other towns in Kiev uyezd, including the following towns (as transliterated from the list on the CDIAK website, which is in modern Ukrainian, and not from older Russian names):  Bishiv (1854-1901, with gaps); Borodyanka (1875-1917, with gaps); Gostomel (1845-1917, but only a few years in that range); Dimer (1856-1917, with gaps); Ignativka (1854-1885, mostly complete); Kagarlik (1869-1906, with gaps); Makariv (1854-1910, with some gaps, but mostly complete); Motizhin (1854-1874); Obukhiv (1869-1874); Rzhishchiv (1851-1917, with gaps); Tripillya (1867-1874); and Yasnogorodka (a handful of years between 1877 and 1900). 

Within the opis, the towns are listed alphabetically, and then roughly chronologically within each town.  There are 457 separate items, or sprava numbers.  Only items 1-90 have been digitized so far; these include all of the surviving records for Bishiv, Borodyanka, Gostomel, and a few of the record books for Dimer.  The rest have not yet been digitized, but I will continue to check updates on the archives’ website, and post updates here when more records have been digitized.

An important note is that many of these records are not yet included on Alex Krakovsky’s site, and so as they are digitized on the CDIAK site, the images will represent the first time they have been readily available to researchers.

The list of all surviving records in fond 1164, opis 2, can be found at:
