 03/10/2015  UkraineSIG report February 2015

Dear SIGgers:

As you are probably aware, UkraineSIG volunteers are always working on a
variety of projects. Most of them are time consuming both in the actual
work and how long it takes until completion, or at least the next stage
is reached. These monthly reports only point out projects that are at a
next stage. Status updates are only indicated when something noteworthy
occurs - submission to me of transcriptions for proofreading, completion
of a section of microfilm scanning, etc.

Does all this sound exciting? Want to help? Please consider one of the following opportunities:
-- make a donation to Ukraine SIG's data acquisition and translation projects or to a specific town's projects through JewishGen-erosity
-- visit the Town List page and check out the page for your town -- if your town does not have a town leader or a kehilalinks site, please consider taking on either of those roles

-- do you have skills reading Russian or Yiddish handwritten records and translating them into English? We need volunteers

--do you have skills with spreadsheets and using the internet? We have projects just waiting to get started needing people with excel and internet experience (and no language skills besides English)

--do you live near a Family History Center and have some spare time? We need volunteers who can scan FHC microfilms

 09/17/2014  First batch of Yahad - In Unum documents collection integrated on Ukraine SIG database

Hi everybody,

I have very exciting news about a project that started two years ago when Ron Doctor and I visited Patrice Bensimon in Yahad - In Unum offices in Paris.

Yahad - In Unum ('together' in Hebrew and Latin) is a Paris-based organization established in 2004 by Father Patrick Desbois and dedicated to systematically identifying and documenting the sites of Jewish mass executions by Nazi mobile-killing units in Eastern Europe during World War II.

That project has given today its first fruits when a first batch of 39 execution sites (out of 462 identified sites) have been integrated as datasets into the Ukraine SIG database. The rest will be integrated in the next few months.

You can access the information about those datasets on the Ukraine SIG website in two different ways:
- in each related town page under the 'Document and Dataset Collections' section
- by searching them in the Master Index of Documents search engine on the 'Ukraine SIG Databases' section under the 'Research' menu.

Each town related collection has a direct link to the Yahad - In Unum town page of the site execution map.

In Yahad - In Unum archives you can find the following resources concerning the Jewish victims of each town/village:

- Video testimonies of eyewitnesses of the mass shootings
- Contemporary photos of executions sites of Jewish victims
- Archival pictures of the town/village and their Jewish inhabitants
- German archives about the executions of Jewish victims
- Soviet archives about the executions of Jewish victims

Video testimonies can be available online upon request on Yahad Interactive Map page

Photos and short video clips of testimonies are available online on Yahad - In Unum interactive map (www.yahadmap.org)

Others archives are available for consultation in Yahad Research Center in Paris (www.yahadinunum.org).

The list of the first 39 towns included is:
