Genealogy at a Glance: Ukrainian Genealogy Research

If you have Ukrainian ancestors, did you know that a famine called Holodomor claimed the lives of millions of Ukrainians in 1932-33?  While the area’s dominant religious faiths were Ukrainian Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Jewish, did you know that Russian Orthodox, Ukrainian Greek Catholic, Lutheran, and Roman Catholic churches also proliferated? Do you know the best way to use “Google Translate” for Ukrainian? Or the name of the website for easily converting dates between the Julian and Gregorian calendars?

If you are stumped by one or more of these questions, you may wish to invest in Vera Ivanova Miller’s new publication, “Genealogy at a Glance: Ukrainian Genealogy Research,” which is now available in laminated format. Ms. Miller, who previously penned a title in the at a glance series on Russian research, has returned with an equally helpful guide to research in Ukraine. Besides a brief chronology of important dates in that country’s history, the author has written summaries of Ukrainian emigration, surnames and religion in Ukraine, culture, finding the ancestral homeland, and databases from the Communist era. She has also included discussions of Ukrainian registry records, vital records, censuses, records of immigration, and online resources. One of the best features of this publication is the quick guide to the Ukrainian alphabet, which is bound to help persons of Ukrainian heritage with translating a language that may be foreign to them.
