Not everyone seems to know about the Jewishgen Shtetl(town/village) Seeker
and the Mormon, Family History websites. These are two excellent referrence
To find the location of a village/town go to
www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/ Click on 'search for towns by name'. You
can select exact spelling or soundex system(try both), and also select
individual country or all countries. When the list is brought up click on
the given co-ordinates.
The Mormon's have filmed millions of Parish records from all over the world.
These can be ordered (in person)through a local Mormon( Jesus Christ of
Latterday Saints) Church, Family History Library, and you can arrange to go
and view/search them. To find if they have filmed in the known Parish go to
www.familysearch.org Select 'search' then 'Family History Library
Catalogue'. Then go on to 'Place Search' to find if the Parish has been
filmed. If it has, details of some villages/towns covered are given.
Good Luck to everyone searching these for the first time.
