Fundraising Project, Uman - Document Acquisition and TranslationDavid SchreiberIn progress
The JewishGen Ukraine SIG has obtained a large number of vital records (birth, marriage, divorce, death) for the town of Uman, from the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People (CAHJP). A large Jewish community lived in Uman during the 18th and 19th centuries and many Jews who emigrated from that city and the small towns in the surrounding region reported Uman as their place of origin. These records are likely to contain information regarding residents as well as non-residents and temporary residents. There are approximately 10,600 pages that need to be translated from Russian and Hebrew and to be transcribed onto a spreadsheet template.

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

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