Old Website Town Pages
The information on this page has been compiled by Ukraine SIG long time ago.
As JewishGen and the Ukraine SIG evolved, the contents of the page became redundant with other areas of
JewishGen (specially the KehilaLinks) and the new SIG website.
This page will be temporarily hosted by the Ukraine SIG site until this contents is transferred to the corresponding
KehilaLink and/or indexed into the Ukraine Database. Then it will be removed.
Some Towns of Kiev Gubernia
ShtetLinks for communities in Kiev Gubernia
ShtetLinks are individual webpages (or mini-websites)
created by people with personal interests in a town. Frequently
their ancestors lived in the towns. ShtetLinks are created from the heart,
and can be as small or as large as the creator has time and material
to add. More information on the ShtetLinks project is here.
We encourage you to create a ShtetLink for your favorite
town. There's lots of support and help available.
