100 years ago Odessa was the fourth largest city in Russian Empire (after Moscow, St Petersbourg, and Warsaw). As it was within the Pale of Settlement, it has the large Jewish population. Another strange twist of the history is that a lot of Jewish records there survived the 1917 revolution, civil war, and the WWII.
We frequently request Jewish research in Odessa archive and do it ourselves. Archivists there are professional and helpful, so you are welcome to write them if you could.
Or call us for help tracing your Jewish ancestry anywhere in the former Russian Empire. We do it regularly, we have many happy clients, and you could be among them.
