Important Note

The Zolotonosha KehilaLinks ensures that Zolotonosha's Jewish history will be more readily available to genealogists. Richard L. Baum, on behalf of The Ukraine SIG, originally developed this site, now taken over by Gary Pokrassa. We need your collaboration to develop more content for Zolotonosha. If you have information you think is of interest for viewers of this KehilaLink, please contact Gary Pokrassa. Thanks for your help.

This site is hosted at no cost to the public by JewishGen, Inc., a non-profit corporation. If it has been useful to you, or if you are moved by the effort to preserve the memory of our lost communities, your JewishGen-erosity would be greatly appreciated.
