Joel Spector is our lecturer. For several years Alex Krakovsky, a Ukrainian Jew, has been scanning metrical and census records found in long-closed Ukrainian archives. He has placed the indexes, in Cyrillic, on a webpage where they can easily be accessed by anyone interested. This presentation will first discuss the origin and method of Alex's data acquisition, and then give an overview of the contents of his site. The Ukraine Research Group, formerly the Ukraine SIG, has begun a project to make English language indexes to these documents available. I will describe the Group's current Metrical Records Project, whose purpose is to transliterate components of the documents and make the data available for researchers on JewishGen.
