Once you have learned the above, test yourself by doing Exercise 8.5A.

There is a section on useful vocabulary for archival research in Ukraine in Using Archives and Libraries in the Former Soviet Union, a guide edited by Samantha Sherry, Jonathan Waterlow and Andy Willimot and produced as an outcome of a research project funded by the Centre for East European Language Based Area Studies (CEELBAS). Further advice on using archives in Ukraine and the full text of the guide are available to view in the CEELBAS Language Repository.

The author of Communicative Ukrainian is grateful to the editors and compilers of Using Archives and Libraries in the Former Soviet Union for permission to reproduce the Ukrainian vocabulary section of the guide.
