 5/2/2015  Family History Library publishes 67,250 images corresponding to the Odessa Census of 1897

The images are accessible online at https://familysearch.org/search/collection/2380520

Unfortunately, they are not indexed so name search is not possible.

 8/23/2014  Odessa Fond 359 - Jewish Head of Household integrated into the All Odessa Database

A new collection of 5286 records has been added to the All Odessa database and is available for standard, soundex and D-M searches.

This Collection indexes the Odessa Jewish Heads of Household (1893-1916) from Odessa Office for Small Business.

The original source of the dataset (in Russian, compiled by Liliya Belousova and Tatiana Volkova in 1999) was found here in 2012.

The original dataset was first automatically transliterated by Ariel Parkansky, then translated, corrected and completed by Bena Shklyanoy.

The original dataset contains 4505 records but, as many of those records point to different locations, in our database a record has been created for each location, augmenting their number to 5286.

The original documents that are in the Odessa State Archives include additional information about each family.
