Project Update: Ukraine SIG

Posted by Linda Cantor


Are you researching family from Ukraine (provinces of Podolia, Volhynia, Kiev, Poltava, Chernigov, Kharkov, Kherson, Taurida and Ekaterinoslav)? We can help you. Are you involved in the Ukraine SIG? We need your participation. Here are some ways we can help each other:
  1. Look at the home page of the Ukraine SIG. You’ll find information about the work we are doing to help you with your research.
  2. Share your genealogical queries with us on the Ukraine SIG Discussion List. To subscribe to the Ukraine SIG Discussion List, click here. If you are already subscribed and want to post a query, just send your message to ukraine@lyris.jewishgen.org.
  3. Check out our new Ukraine SIG Facebook page by clicking here. We hope you will "like" us, add comments, ask questions, and generally share with the Ukraine SIG community.
  4. Volunteer to get involved in our many new projects.  The new Ukraine SIG Board along with many volunteers are revitalizing  the SIG and getting a number of new research projects going. We need volunteers to work with us on indexing projects, on translations from Russian and Yiddish to English, on web projects, and more. 
Whether you have time to volunteer or not, you can help us move forward by contributing financially. Your contributions will help pay for acquisition of documents and for professional translators to supplement our volunteers.  You can make tax-deductible contributions to the Ukraine SIG General Fund by clicking here.

We hope you will get involved in all of the above activities.  If you haven’t already done so, please be sure to post your family surnames and towns on the JewishGen Family Finder. If you have genealogical queries, be sure to post them on the Discussion Group. Take a look at our Facebook page and ‘like’ it.  Contact us to get more involved in SIG activities.

For more information about how you can help, contact Ron Doctor, the Ukraine SIG Coordinator, at rddpdx@gmail.com.
