Does anyone know why the "Western Ukraine Catholic Church Book Duplicates of Metrical Records" in Family Search have been down since October 28th?
Those who have ancestors from the ancient kingdom of Austrian Galicia (Lwów region) certainly use the digitalized records available on Family Search for research (the Greek Catholic Ukrainian Church made a copy of most of the Roman Catholic Church books in the 19th century). However, since the 28th of October these records are inaccessible and the system indicates that there is an error in its access (without informing further details). I have already tried to contact the family search but they inform that they are really with an error and is being checked, without further clarification.
Would anyone know if the Historical Archives of Ukraine (at Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in L’viv) has terminated the agreement allowing Family Search to display these records online? Is anyone else having the same problem? Does anybody know if there is another place to search for digitized copies of the Ukrainian Historical Archives?
I just found this part of Family Search. I have ancestors from Galicia. It is great to see that when it’s up and going, I’ll have a new resource! Thank you!0
