Project: Fundraising Project, Document Acquisition for Kherson Novopoltavka, Beryslav/Bere
|Description:||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.|
