Find Lost Russian & Ukrainian Family: New Ukrainian database breaks down a brickwall on Christmas morning

Find Lost Russian & Ukrainian Family: New Ukrainian database breaks down a brickwall on Christmas morning. “For years, I have heard my grandmother’s brother was named after a brother who died as a baby. No one could tell me when this child was born, except he was born before 1927. On Christmas morning, I discovered a new database from the City of Kyiv archives. The archives has indexed more than 190,000 birth records for 1919-1936 here. Yes, it is in Ukrainian but it is a very simple database.” The site includes clear instructions for using the database even if you can’t read Ukrainian.
