 05/08/2015  UkraineSIG April 2015 report

Dear SIGgers:

This past month, UkraineSIG embarked on a new fundraising project: We began a crowdsourcing project challenging everyone to donate $20 - if all 3500+ UkraineSIG subscribers donate that amount, we will have enough money to make inroads in translating data. Included in donations as result of that appeal was a contribution from a donor to cover the cost of translating the 48 pages of Makarov vital records we have already scanned.

Translations waiting proofreading:
PRILUKI 2192584 item 24: 1873: 44 marriages
PRILUKI 2192584 item 22: 1873: deaths- 52 men, 42 women
PRILUKI 2192584 item 28: 1858: 27 marriages; deaths- 41 men, 28 women;
births- 57 girls, 67 boys
PRILUKI 2192584 item 26: 1855: 29 marriages

New Town Leader:
Lyantskorun - Gus Yusem

Chernigov towns 2091576: Chernigov, Korop, Nezhin, Gorodnia, Kozelets,

 04/22/2015  Crowd-sourcing translations and transcriptions

Dear Friends:
I am very happy to tell you that as of this week we have over 3560
subscribers to the Ukraine SIG Discussion Group. We also have in excess
of 200,000 images of documents from archives in Ukraine, which have not
yet been translated. I can't even begin to tell you how many people's
names appear in these records.

Believe it or not, in addition to these records, we continue to acquire
more and more documents.

I do know that unless we do something really creative we will not be
able to get the data translated and transcribed so that any of you can
look for your families and hopefully put some more details about your
own history.

I do have something in mind, and I think it may be affordable for every
one of you. I really did mean what the subject line of this message
says: crowd-sourcing translations and transcriptions. If every single
subscriber to the Ukraine SIG Discussion Group donates $20 we will have
raised over $70,000 and can make some real headway in our translations.

I am not asking for $20 a month - I am just asking for $20 - period.
Well, maybe I'll ask for $20 a year. But, for right now, I'm just
asking for $20. JewishGen is of course a 501C3 and if you live in the
United States, that means that your $20 donation may be tax deductible.
How can you make your $20 donation? Go to the Ukraine SIG website:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Ukraine/default.asp -- at the top of the page,
put your cursor on 'donate/contribute' and click on 'donate' -- scroll
down to almost the bottom of the list to where it says 'Ukraine SIG
General Fund.' Put in your dollar amount and either donate using the
secure server, or print out the donation form and mail it to the address
on it with your check.

If everyone contributes, although we will still need volunteers to work
on the translation, we will be able to move ahead faster than we have
been able to by hiring translators. Our volunteers are amazing, but for
most of them, the work can only be done for a short while each day
because of other obligations. Paid translators will have more time to
devote to our important work and will make better progress.

Please join me in making your $20 donation today.

Dear SIGgers:

As you are probably aware, UkraineSIG volunteers are always working on a
variety of projects. Most of them are time consuming both in the actual
work and how long it takes until completion, or at least the next stage
is reached. These monthly reports only point out projects that are at a
next stage. Status updates are only indicated when something noteworthy
occurs - submission to me of transcriptions for proofreading, completion
of a section of microfilm scanning, etc.
