  •  08/16/2012  Discussion List Grows to 2,900 Subscribers

    The Ukraine SIG now has 2,900 subscribers to our mailing list! This makes us the largest list on the JewishGen system, aside from the JewishGen Mailing List itself! Congratulations to all of you who make this possible.

    We continue to grow in other ways, as well. We have recently added our 150th Town Leader, and there will soon be 100 KehilaLinks sites for towns in our coverage area. The JewishGen Ukraine Database continues to grow and new record sources continue to be found and added. None of this happens without you. If you have not yet checked out our website, come and see what we are doing. More importantly, your contribution of a little time is greatly appreciated. Contact us if you are interested in developing a KehilaLinks site, becoming a Town Leader, participating in a project to add records to our databases and others. It may take as little as a couple of hours a week, but you can help future researchers find their family histories. Let us know what you can do to help.

    For the Board of Ukraine SIG,

     08/08/2012  IAJGS Paris Conference Report is online

    In case you missed this on yesterday's Ukraine SIG Discussion List, I have posted my report about the IAJGS Conference on the Ukraine SIG website. It is under the 'About Us/Ukr-SIG Newsletter' menu item. In addition to reporting on Ukraine SIG events at last month's IAJGS Conference in Paris, France, the report includes some information about Yad Vashem searching and Father Patrick Desbois' Yahad - in Unum that may be helpful to you.

     08/01/2012  Nikolayev (now Mikolayev) KehilaLinks website is online

    Congratulations to Amira Hemme for getting her new KehilaLinks website for Nikolayev (now Mikolayev) online. Here is what she wrote:

    Hello Fellow Genealogists and friends:

    The KehilaLink for Mykolayiv (Kherson Province) is active at last!

    Many of you submitted photos and/or family stories. Others helped in many ways - from helping with translations, to helping me understand what is involved in creating a web page, to providing moral support. Still others have expressed an interest in seeing the results when the website is active.

    I have to say that this has been a very challenging project - it took over six months to get it all together. And I could not have done it, it would have never turned out as wonderful as it did, if I didn't have your help and your support.

    If you see anything that needs to be updated or corrected, please let me know, and I'll pass it along to the webmaster.

    This is the link: Mykolayev KehilaLinks Website

    Enjoy and keep in touch.
