Project Name. Gomel Uezd Jewish Records Project
Jewish Records Index of the Gomel region
Belarus SIG Research Coordinator
The JewishGen Belarus SIG is working to obtain 19th and early 20th century records for Jewish families from the Gomel region of present-day Belarus. A variety of records from a variety of sources will be researched. Examples of the types of records that we hope to obtain are vital records, census lists and Jewish community records.
Individual researchers with family from Gomel and nearby towns in the Gomel region will be the primary beneficiaries of these projects.
Few records are currently available to those researching Jewish families from the Gomel region. This project will seek to fill the gaps in many of our family genealogies.
Professional and volunteer researchers will extract data from original records, translate them into English, and enter the data into a spreadsheet template provided by JewishGen. Once those tasks are complete, JewishGen will integrate the new data into the JewishGen Belarus Database
$10,000-$25,000, depending on the type and number of records available.
