Fundraising Project, Smiela - Document Acquisition and TranslationSteven RosenbergIn progress
Smiela was one of the main towns in what was Kievskaya Gubernia during the 19th century, with a significant Jewish population of 7,475 according to the 1897 Russian Census of that year. The records for the town of Smiela were stored in the State Archives of Cherkassy Oblast and in the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Kiev. Fortunately, the Jewish records for Smiela stored in the State Archives of Cherkassy Oblast– birth, death, marriage, and divorce records for 1839-1897 as well as Revision Lists (Censuses) 1811-1858, Family Lists (Taxation Lists) 1847-1917 and Military Records 1831-1871 for the District of Cherkassy were microfilmed by the Church of the Latter Day Saints and are held in the Family History Library (FHL) in Salt Lake City. Information contained in these records still remains unreachable for many, for they are not available on-line.

The JewishGen Ukraine SIG is digitizing the reels of microfilm of vital records from Smiela held by the FHL. Once these reels have been digitized, this project will oversee the translation and indexing of this data. Smiela Vital Records are found on 6 microfilm reels at the FHL. The original Archival Material for Smiela came from from Fond 388; Opis 1; Dela 1-8, 10-30 and Fond 931; Opis 1; Dela 3093, 3162. These records are on microfilm numbers 2152718, 2289403-2289404, and 2289443-2289445.

The Cherkassy District Records of interest for Revision Lists include 9 microfilm reels at the FHL, microfilm numbers 2199441 through 2199449. Family Lists include 6 microfilm reels, microfilm numbers 2192577-2192580, 2199426, 2199429 and Military Lists which include 2 microfilm reels, microfilm numbers 2199435 and 2199426.

Images of the original documents from this scanning project are not available through JewishGen and can be obtained through the Family History Library. 

The new datasets will be integrated into the JewishGen Ukraine Database, Ukraine SIG Master Name Index, and appropriate KehilaLinks websites.
