Old Website Town Pages
The information on this page has been compiled by Ukraine SIG long time ago.
As JewishGen and the Ukraine SIG evolved, the contents of the page became redundant with other areas of
JewishGen (specially the KehilaLinks) and the new SIG website.
This page will be temporarily hosted by the Ukraine SIG site until this contents is transferred to the corresponding
KehilaLink and/or indexed into the Ukraine Database. Then it will be removed.
Uman was a sizable city in Kiev Gubernia and it must have sent tens of thousands
of its favorite sons and daughters abroad in the period of the Great
Emigrants thru Ellis Island with Last Residence of Uman
Deborah Glassman pored through the Ellis Island Database, and extracted
any immigrants who noted a "Last Residence" of Uman, or a town
that could be Uman. You can browse the list here.
(Note: There are over 1300 immigrants listed. The page may take several
moments to load.)
