Carol, OK, that did the trick. Yes, the letter is in the Ukrainian language. As a side note, I understand you're researching family names in Poltava, Ukraine. It would appear to me that the surnames of the people you're researching are Russian as they're not typical Ukrainian names. Ukrainians are the predominant people there but Poltava (which is in central Ukraine) does have a Russian minority which could account for why Russian surnames are appearing in your family tree.

Kye, I have to say that it is much clearer on my computer screen than it is showing on here......... Carol

Kye, I have rescanned it at a much higher resolution without the color ... hope this works better..

Carol, do you have a sharper resolution image of the letter that you can provide me? Even when I enlarge it I'm still having trouble making out most of the words because they're not clear enough. I definitely can tell you it's using the Cyrillic alphabet, but with the words in the letter not being legible enough, it's hard for me to go much further.

Kye, thank you very much.

Comment by Kye E. Parsons on July 3, 2010 at 5:59am
Sure Carol, I should be able to determine that for you.

Hi Kye, thank you for responding. That is wonderful. Could I send you a file with a letter in it so that you could tell me for sure if it is written in Ukrainian?

Hi Carol, yes I can read Ukrainian. My mother is Ukrainian.

I’m looking for information on my great-great grandparents Juccaiman Feodor Alexandrovich Kovner 1859-1912 and his wife Tatiana Andreevna Rashitankov 1863-1930. I can't find any information about who their parents were. I know that Feodor’s mother’s maiden name was Alexandrovich but that’s all I know. They both lived in Poltava, Ukraine with their three children, the youngest my great grandmother Mary Kovner. The family immigrated to Hawaii in 1909.

Hi, Just wondering if anyone out there can read Ukrainian?
