Ukraine SIG has recently become aware of about 450 pages containing about 1500 records of Jewish births, marriages, divorces and deaths in the city of Perm, which is located in Russia proper. Since there is currently no Russian SIG for JewishGen, we are looking for a volunteer to help catalog these records and set up an archive, so that when there is a Russian SIG, we can turn them over.
Many Ukrainian Jews, fleeing the oncoming Germans in 1941, stopped in places like Perm on their way east. We are not looking to create a translation project; but rather to archive these records for future use.
Please contact me if you are interested in helping with this project or any other project involving towns in Ukraine. We are always in need of project
leaders and those who can translate or transcribe records. The pay is lousy, but the rewards are excellent. Please contact me if you can help.
