Fundraising Project, Zolotonosha - Document Acquisition and TranslationGary PokrassaIn progress
The JewishGen Ukraine SIG has scanned microfilms from the Family History Library (FHL) containing records of births, deaths and marriages for residents of Zolotonosha, as well as non-residents and temporary residents. There are more than 2,600 images in total.

Adding the information to the JewishGen Ukraine Database will be a multistep project, involving the work of many people who will:
digitally scan the microfilms (already completed)
label each file
translate the high resolution digital files
place the information on specific format spread sheets
proof the spreadsheets
process them for eventual upload to the JewishGen Ukraine Database.

Images of the original documents from this scanning project are not available through JewishGen and can be obtained through the Family History Library and the Center for Jewish History.

The new datasets will be integrated into the JewishGen Ukraine Database, Ukraine SIG Master Name Index, and appropriate KehilaLinks websites.
