|Type:||Name Lists, Biographical|
|Description:||Several Russian language websites contain short biographies of Russians, both Jewish and non-Jewish. Ukraine SIG is extracting entries that appear to be for Jews and that have a Ukraine connection. We have begun by processing lists from two sources:
Encyclopedia of Names, Kharkov Province, Volume 1
by Andrey Fedorovich Paramonov. Mr. Paramonov is Director of the Private Museum of Kharkov City Mansion, and
Center for Genealogical Research (CGR).
In addition, there are many 'Memory Books' online. These memorialize soldiers and civilian casualties of wars, pogroms, and other events. Ukraine SIG is cataloging these and will begin extraction and translation projects when we obtain volunteer translators for the work.
If you can help translate these important lists, please contact
