Projects and support

Jewishgen and the Ukraine SIG have a number of projects on going concerning Odessa:

* Improving the Odessa KehilaLinks
* Enlarging of the Odessa records collection (Ukraine Database)
     - Identifiying available "fonds"
     - Acquiring, indexing and translating new "fonds"

The Odessa team, as well as the rest of JewishGen is mainly supported by volunteers and donations.
In order to succeed in this ambitious project, we need your help that can be on several forms:
* Improving the Odessa KehilaLinks
     - If you have information, documents or pictures related to Odessa
     - If you can write an article about a subject related to Odessa
     - If you want to share a family story or anecdote
* Enlarging the Odessa Database
     - If you have documents or data related to Odessa people (vital records, census, other historic documents)
     - 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 Odessa Program on the JewishGen-erosity (the main target is the acquisition and translation of new "fonds")

Thanks in advance for your support.

None of these projects could have been done without the collaboration of tenths of genealogists who donated their personal records or money for acquisition and translation. A big thank you to all of them.

Even most important was the work of a lot of volunteers who donated their time and skills to translate and index all those records all over the years.
I want to thank them by name:
Ruth Bridgens, Shalom Bronstein, Lara Diamond, Eric Fenstein, Slavik Greenblat, Yoni Kupchik, Isabelle Nemirovski, Nick Perper, Dmitry Pruss, Jane Rollins, Anna Royzner, Vlad Salita, Tana
And specially to Anita Citron Z"L, Julia Lombardo and Laura Breitberg who translated more than half of the records.
