The presentation of the sixth volume of the series “The Greeks of Odessa” will take place at the Odessa Branch on September 4, at 16:00 hrs.
The series “The Greeks of Odessa” is the outcome of HFC’s co-operation with the State Historical Archives of Odessa, which started in 2000 and considers the index of the records of the Agia Triada Greek church in Odessa for the period 1794-1922.
Since then, with the Foundation’s support, five volumes have been published. The sixth volume covers the period 1907-1920. The guides offer valuable information about the history of the Greek population in Odessa and they are extremely useful for the researchers and those who occupy with the historic demography and genealogy.
The volumes made a favourable impression, mainly to the Greeks of the former Soviet Union and they are almost out of print. A data basis is created, with a search mechanism – initially in the Russian language – with on-line connection directly from the web-page of the Branch.
