JewishGen: ShtetLinks, recent updates

JewishGen's ShtetLinks Project provides a way for genealogists and family historians to memorialize the communities of our ancestors, and provide resources for others who discover their roots.

Here are the newest ones as provided by Susana Leistner Bloch, who is in charge of the project.

-- Berehove (Beregszasz), Ukraine
-- Dzikow Stary (Dzikhev)
-- Kamennyy Brod, Ukraine
-- Klykoliai (Klikol), Lithuania
-- Philippson JCA Colony (Itaara), Brazil
-- Raducaneni, Romania
-- Szczercow (Shtchertzov, Stertzev)
-- Velke Kapusany (Nagykapos), Slovakia

Some pages were started by individuals who can no longer maintain them. One page in this category has now been adopted:

-- Leova, Moldova

Orphaned webpages available for adoption:

-- Borisov, Belarus
-- Krnov (Jaegerndorf), Czech Republic
-- Lask, Poland
-- Rozdol, Ukraine

ShtetLinks webpages recently updated:

If you would like to create a webpage for your ancestral shtetl or adopt an orphaned page, send an email to Susana Leistner Bloch. Volunteers are available to help you create your page.
