Project Synopsis

The Shpikov KehilaLinks group has, with the help of a researcher, identified surviving documents on the Jewish Community of Shpikov and at least 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. Funds also will be used to translate the acquired records and to prepare the datasets for posting to the JewishGen Ukraine Database and the Ukraine SIG Master Name Index. Full translations will be posted on the appropriate KehilaLinks websites. These will be translated into English and then the data will be entered into a JewishGen spreadsheet template which will become available to contributors well before posting on the JewishGen Ukraine Database.

Key Audience

The key audience for this project is people whose ancestors lived in or near this town.

Project Importance

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.

Project Description The project will fund acquisition and translation of the above-mentioned documents. The researcher who identified the location of the documents in the Khmelnitski Archives will provide copies of and will transcribe the documents. The new datasets will be integrated into the JewishGen Ukraine Database, Ukraine SIG Master Name Index, and appropriate KehilaLinks websites.

Estimated Cost

$4000 - $7000
