Fundraising Project, Doc Acquisition/Translation for Kherson, RomanovkaSylvia WalowitzIn progress
The FHL has Jewish vital records and family list microfilms for 83 towns and districts within the JewishGen Ukraine SIG"s geographic area, plus revision lists and community records for about 158 districts. Within the past few years, the FHL and its associated FamilySearch Centers (FSCs) have installed microfilm scanners, which can be used to convert microfilm images to several useful digital image formats. Our volunteers will rent microfilms from the FHL and will use the FHL/FSC scanners to obtain digitized images of vital records, revision lists, and other relevant documents. After acquisition, we will initiate individual translation projects. The translations (but not the images) will be posted in the JewishGen Ukraine Database, and possibly other locations.

The Central Archives (CAHJP) is accelerating document acquisition from archives in Eastern Europe, especially Poland and Ukraine. The JewishGen Ukraine SIG has an arrangement with the Director of the Central Archives to obtain digitized images of the records they obtain at a discounted price (see the “Estimated Cost” section of this proposal, below). This agreement stems from cooperative activities between the Kremenets District Research Group and the Central Archives over the past five years. In addition, the CAHJP has agreed to accept our requests for records from towns outside the Kremenets District.

The project will be carried out in several overlapping phases:

Identifying appropriate scanning resources, costs, and volunteers
Document acquisition: scanning FHL microfilms, and digital images of CAHJP documents
Translation / transliteration,
Processing for posting in the JewishGen Ukraine Database and other places.

Items from the journey by the inspection commission of the region into the Jewish settlement of Kherson region.
List of Jewish settlers in Romanovka, Nowo Bereslav, Novopoltavka, 1843. 
All the files in the folder relate to a petition on the same issue submitted in 1843 by three different Jewish colonies at the same time and worded nearly identically. 
In the summer of last year of 1842, each Colony was hit by a poor crop of grain and hay, therefore the representatives of the landowners of the Colony had petitioned the Government to subsidize provisions for families, seeds for fields, and feed for the cattle in wintertime; the first two subsidies were granted, but one for feed for the cattle was not received.  For that reason, the pasturing cattle that were given away for the winter to outsiders are still with those landowners, while they couldn"t  buy the cattle back because of our poverty.  Therefore, referring to the original Decision  they were kindly asking Your Excellency personally, Governor General for Novorossijsk and Bessarabia, Adjutant General  and Holder of Orders, Count Mikhail Semenovich Vorontsov, to grant them a monetary loan to enable us to buy back the cattle and, thus, make a fair Decision. 
There is also a list of all the Jewish settlers in 1843 in each one of the three colonies.
