Janette Silverman JewishGen Ukraine SIG Coordinator
The Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People (Hebrew University, Jerusalem) has collected documents relating to towns of Ukraine and their Jewish populations. The JewishGen Ukraine SIG acquired digital copies of documents from CAHJP in the summer of 2013. This included 3,592 pages of data from Olgopol District. We have identified various documents relating to the towns of Bershad, Olgopol and other Jewish settlements in Podolia Gubernia:
Funds raised for this project will be used to translate the acquired records and to prepare the datasets for posting to the JewishGen Ukraine Database.
The key audience for this project are descendants of people who lived in or near these towns.
The Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem is a rich source of archival documents. Acquiring, translating, and making available documents and datasets relating to Jews from these towns will benefit genealogical researchers and will help provide context for the lives of our ancestors. The data also will help us understand patterns of Jewish population growth and migration.
The project will fund the translation records from Olgopol District, consisting of 3,592 pages. Digital images of these documents were acquired from The Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People (CAHJP). Professional and volunteer researchers will translate the copies of documents provided by the Archives.
