Custom Searches
I will do Custom Searches of the Newspaper of Record for the Guberniyas,  for Volhynia and Podolia Guberniyas for male births. I will do Custom Searches of Imaged Birth and Death Metrika where I have those registers. The search is for a 2 yr period when you have the year from a non Russian source, the year you have, and the year previous. Normally 60.00 USD for one two-year search,  sold in a package of 180.00 for four searches, a sixty dollar savings.

Ostropol’s Jews in Soviet Union 1918 -1991 
by Deborah G. Glassman, copyright 2019

This article and all of the articles and indexes  linked on this page are copyright and may not be used without the written permission of the copyright holder.

This Section of the Jewish Families of Ostropol website  includes records created in the Soviet Union, its subordinate jurisdictions including the Soviets of Ukraine, Russia, Uzbekhistan, and many others where those born in Ostropol may have later resided. It includes  records created at every level incluging national, individual soviets, individual oblasts (districts),  raions (regions around major cities), cities, and villages. It includes the bureaucracies of each of those levels of government.

This Section Head was created in March 2019 to bring together the different records already created from Soviet resources. These include those  on the Soviet Military in World War II, the Soviet investigation of Holocaust persecution in the aftermath of the Holocaust, and the Soviet judicial authorities involved with the imprisonment and execution of political enemies. There are many more records to be utilized including the very valuable University, College, and technical school records, and we may also at some point be able to take advantage of the Internal Passport system. But this page will be  expanded in May 2019 to make it a resource in it's own right. Please come back to see what we have learned and can share!
This is the first page of a report on the "Persecuted  of Ostropol" issued May 1944 by the Soviet Extraordinary Commission. The individuals were noted as "Persecuted" vs. murdered as there were no surviving witnesses to their fate. Each is noted with the number of family members and some details about lost property. The full indexed lists of the multiple page document will appear in the upcoming article on Soviet Holocaust Records.
