The Mogilev-Podolskiy KehilaLinks group has, through the help of a researcher from the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People (CAHJP), identified surviving documents related to the Jewish Community of Mogilev-Podolskiy, and at parts of the surrounding area (precise area will only be determined as the records are transcribed), including:
Funds raised for this project will be used to acquire copies of these documents and to translate the records, to prepare the datasets for posting to the JewishGen Ukraine Database. The data will be entered into a JewishGen spreadsheet template, which will be available to contributors well before posting on the JewishGen Ukraine Database. Full translations may also be posted on the appropriate KehilaLinks websites.
The key audience for this project is people whose ancestors lived in or near Mogilev-Podolskiy. There are more than 100 individuals on our group email list and currently 166 individuals researching about 270 Mogilev-Podolskiy-connected surnames in the JewishGen Family Finder.
Acquiring, translating, and making available documents and dataset relating to Jews from this town will benefit genealogical researchers and will help provide context for the lives of our ancestors. Many of the records for this area were destroyed in a fire in the Kamenets-Podolsky Archives in 2003, so it is particularly important to document what remains.
The project will fund acquisition and translation of the above-mentioned documents. The researcher who identified the location of the documents in the archives will provide copies of and will transcribe the documents. The new datasets will be integrated into the JewishGen Ukraine Database, and appropriate KehilaLinks websites.
