Collection Name:Biographical Names Collection, Kharkov Encyclopedia, Province Volhynia
Geographic Area:Volhynia (Province)
Type:Name Lists, Biographical
Time frame:1784-1997
Description:This dataset contains 2 entries for the province of Volhynia.

This dataset is a translation of Jewish biographical entries extracted from the online version of Encyclopedia of Names, Kharkov Province, Volume 1, by Andrey Fedorovich Paramonov. Mr. Paramonov is Director of the Private Museum of Kharkov City Mansion. He collected the records at the State Archive of Kharkiv Province beginning in 1999. The original text is in Russian.

Ukraine SIG extracted entries that appear to be for Jews and that have a Ukraine connection. With permission of the author, Ukraine SIG volunteers translated the extracted entries using an online copy of the book, as well as additional data provided by the author. A similar, but more extensive set of the data is on the website of the Center for Genealogical Research (CGR). A few entries in the Ukraine SIG dataset were not in the original list published by A.F. Paramonov, but only on the CGR website.

Currently the dataset has 379 entries. Of these, 339 entries mention 70 different towns in Ukraine. The dataset will be expanded as new translations become available from the CGR and other Russian language websites.

The dataset has been submitted to the JewishGen Ukraine Database. When it becomes available there, researchers will be able to search for given names, surnames, and towns in various combinations.
