RE: [czernowitz2006] Reunion shtetl visits and Transnistria trip
- Dear Simon,
Here is the information about the villages the Andermanns would like to
visit. It seems like I will stay for the whole week, and
return with my family to Lviv on the 25th. I was trying to return earlier
to Toronto for a conference, but it seems like I would miss too much of the
reunion and it would be difficult to have this family trip at any other

Subject: [czernowitz2006] Reunion shtetl visits and Transnistria trip
A week ago I sent you an e mail (February 5, 2006) requesting that you
reconfirm the shtetls you wanted to visit as well as your interest in
going on the trip to Transnistria. Some of you responded, indicating
places you wanted to visit (some of which were different from those you
had earlier expressed an interest in). This was fine, at least I knew
you are coming and where you definitely wanted to go.
Some of you responded but gave me names of shtetls I don't recognize or
can't locate on my maps. Because you have not given me any idea where
they are relative to Czernowitz, I am not able to include them on the
list I will give to the guides. Consequently, unless you let me know
soon, these places may not be included in the itineraries.
Many of you have not responded at all (either to confirm that you are
coming or giving me names of towns you definitely want to see). I
understand that some of you cannot confirm at this time for health or
other reasons. I will do the best I can to help depending on when you
are able to let me know if you are coming.
In my earlier e mail, I tried to make it clear that in order to plan
itineraries for these trips with the guides, I have to be sure you are
coming and I need to know how many will be in your party.
Unless you reconfirm with me by February 20th, regarding the towns you
are definitely interested, your name will be dropped from the list and
trip itineraries based only on RECONFIRMATIONS received.
At this time, there are 14 members signed up for the Transnistria trip
which will visit Mogilev, Shargorod, Bershad and Budi.
As for the half day trips, the only confirmed shtetls I have are:
Sadagora, Zastavna, Zaleshchiki, Tovtse, Kamenets Podolsky,
Oleyevo-Korolevka, Ocna/Vikno, Kemennya, Zablotiv, Ilintse, Czeczina,
Novosiletz, Storojinets, Wisnitz, Banila Moldova, Vaskivici/Washkowzy,
Dolgopol'ye / Campulung Rus., Chotin/Khotin and Gorodenka/Horodenka.
If your shtetls are not on this list please e mail me.
Again, I look froward to hearing from you soon,
