I signed up for the site about a year ago; through it I learned a
great deal about the jewish community in my mother's home town, and
we even spoke to a historian regarding that particular shtetl.
Sadly, they were complete incognizant and unaware of the plight of
the Soviet deportees (even though they were both Gentile and
Jewish). Their emphasis, understandably, was the annilation of the
Jewish community by the Germans long after our families were gone.
My mother remembered several merchants and families whom the
historian recognized, but that was the extent of our collaboration.
The site itself, however, is full of incredible resources and links;
if only there had been more cooperation when the 19th and early 20th
century Russian censuses (I know there is another name for them) were
translated. Because of the cost, only the records of Jewish citizens
were completed, digitized and made available through this site.
