Fundraising Project for Document Acquisition for Kherson, Novopoltavka, & Beryslav

The LDS Family History Library (FHL) has Jewish vital records, family lists, revision lists
& community records on microfilm.
These microfilms can be converted by scanners into digital form.
Volunteers will rent the microfilm and convert them into digital images. After the conversion
and acquisition of the records, they will be translated into English and placed on the JewishGen
Ukraine Database.

See Ukraine SIG Project Page for more details.

The Kherson team, as well as the rest of JewishGen, is supported mainly by volunteers and donations.
In order to succeed in these ambitious projects we need your help. Your help can take several forms:

* Improving the Kherson KehilaLink
     - If you have information, documents or pictures related to Kherson

     - If you want to share a family story or anecdote

* Enlarging the Kherson Database
     - If you can translate Cyrillic records
     - If you can work on the classifiying of the data available on the internet

You can Contact Us.

You can also make a donation to the Kherson Program on the JewishGen-erosity
(the main target is the acquisition and translation of new "fonds")

Thanks in advance for your support.
