There is a Catholic film at the LDS for Zhitomir (Puliny) taken from the
in Kiev. I tried to send the page from the LDS site, but don't know if it
will go through. Go to www.familysearch.org , SEARCH, and next page Family
History Library catalogue. Click on "Place search" and type in Zhitomir and
then hit Search
There are a number of listings, but the only catholic one was for Puliny.
