Vitaly Chumak not only served as my translator and guide, but he
was thoroughly familiar with the holdings of the government archives in the
region. Here he is in the State Archive of Zhitomir Oblast with the 1850
list of inhabitants who lived in Novograd Volynsk. Vitaly is a colleague of
Miriam Weiner, who planned out my trip.
