My family came to the US from a small town named Nikolayev (on a tributary of the Bug River near Chmelnitsky) in the early 1900s (1910) - not the large town still existing today. I am intersted in accessing any birth / death records for that area.

The names I am researching are Hoffman / Oifman / Bernstein / Cwengel.

Thanks in advance.

In the time frame you are researching, your ancestral village was located in Podolia Guberniya of Old Russian Empire.

Petersburg judaica: Books

Today selo/village MYKOLAYIV (formerly Nikolayev) >Khmelnitskij Raion/District>Khmelnitska Oblast/Region>UA - zip code for village 31303.
PS>According to Shtetlseeker Proskurow was in Khmelnitskij Raion in 1970, but according to latest Ukrainian Postal Code Index, I don't see it listed as an entity today.

From doing just a quick search for archives, think that you will probably have to do an archival inquiry @Kamenets Podolskij City State Archives in Khmelnitskij (not to be mistaken w/Khmelnitska Oblast/Region Archives).

Link below is probably one of the best for anyone of Jewish heritage from this area.

Start w/search for records for Nikolayev>Khmelnitskij Raion>Khmelnitska Oblast. Also go thru Archive Chapters very carefully. Just make a point of exploring the entire site!!!

Click Archive Database, then Search Database. Do Soundex Search for town

There is no particular organization to these sites. I have just listed what I could find re Podolia Jewish Genealogy on Web for general interest purposes.

Bloody Bacchanalia: The Proskurov and Felshtin Pogroms, by Michael Nevins, Vice President, Felshtin Society

Bernstein surname shows up here.
