📢Ukraine Research Division adds 200k New Records! #JewishGenUpdates

Avraham Groll

Dear JewishGen Community,

JewishGen is pleased to announce that more than
200,000 new records have been added to our Ukraine Revision List project just since September of this year!  This major update doubles the total number of Ukraine Revision Lists available on JewishGen!

Notably, these 200k new records include links to the original images. You can easily search these records, for free, by visiting https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/ukraine. If you locate an image that you would like to fully translate, we suggest utilizing ViewMate (https://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/) where you can seek assistance from other members of the JewishGen community. 

We now have a large team working on our Ukraine Revision List project, and are producing records at an accelerated rate. (In the near future we will expand our focus to Metrical Records). This new initiative allows us to aggressively address the backlog of records that have been collected and have, up until now, relied on individual translators. 

We expect to add another batch of ~100,000 new records toward the end of December - please watch for an announcement via email and the Discussion Group!

To learn more about these records, please click here: https://jewishgen.org/databases/ukraine/Revision.html. A complete list of towns covered in this new update (many of which are in the vicinity of Kyiv), along with the number of records associated with each town, can be accessed by clicking here.

The addition of these records was made possible by the financial contributions of generous donors from around the world, and we greatly appreciate everyone’s support. If you are in a position to do so, please consider supporting our continuing efforts by visiting https://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=22 and navigating to “Ukraine Documents Acquisition and Translation Project.” 

Finally, this project is overseen completely by volunteers. If you would like to get involved, we could use your help! Please contact me at pberenson@... for more information.
