About us

…not exactly a town and not exactly a township but a shtetl. There were hundreds of these in Old Russia…

The Jewish population of Ukraine before the Second World War was over 2.5 million but now the current population is only in the 100,000 range. A whole world with it’s very own culture,rules, and customs that is now disapearing.

I decided to make this website in dedication to the Jews of Ukraine. The purpose of it is the gathering information and reasources from remaining the Jewish communities in Ukraine aswell as the ones destroyed.

  1. hello

  2. Thank you for posting this information. My mother’s mother came from Romney to the U.S. in 1907 to live with her husband who was already in New York.

    • My father-in-law’s father, Nathan Saevitz, was born in Romny c 1877 and moved to London c 1905. I Know him to have had relatives in New York who have descendants living today, but so far I have been unable to find out much more. If you can help in any way with sources of further information, I would be very grateful. Many thanks.

      • I can provide contacts of person who is providing service of geneological research ​in Ukrainian archives. If you still need help just write here.

  3. Thank you for this well designed website! I am researching my Ruderman family, who primarily originated in the general area of Minsk, Belarus. However, there is reason to believe that Lubny and other Ukrainian shtetlach had Rudermans living there in earlier times. Do you know of any documentation of Ruderman families in Ukrainian shtetlach prior to approx. 1880? Any advice you have will be greatly appreciated!

  4. Thank you for this site. My great grandmother came from Cherkas(?) originally, then to England in about 1801, then at the age of 70 to Australia in 1949 to join her daughter Anne who had already emigrated here. Her maiden name was Sara Taradyen.

    • Виталий, добрый день. А можно ли поподробнее о возможностях поиска украинских корней?

      • С поиском украинских корней не сталкивался. Восновном по-еврейским специализируюсь.

  6. Виталий, ну так они все еврейские корни, просто последнее, что я обнаружил, что линия была известная и ветвь уходит в Украину. Лев (Лейб) Евелевич Новосельский – мой прапрадед. Может быть есть возможность написать вам личное письмо?

  7. написал, спасибо
