Online Ukrainian Directories at the Library of Congress

The Library of Congress has digitized five Ukrainian telephone directories from 1935 -1949 and made them available to the public via the links below, either through "page view" display or searchable and downloadable .pdf. Searching is not entirely reliable, and thus results should be confirmed manually by turning to the appropriate page. The .pdf files also have bookmarks pointing to each lettered section.
