Some of our shtetlpages were created by people who are no longer able to maintain them. We thank them for their past efforts and wish them luck on their future endeavors, and we hope that someone else will "adopt them."

We are therefore pleased to announce that one of these shtetlach was recently "adopted":

Kaunas (Kovno), Lithuania
Shtetlpage adopted by Eilat Gordin Levitan
Webmaster: Kevin Lo

If you wish to adopt an existing "orphaned" shtetlpage, please contact us

    But how would we know if a shtetl page has been abandoned, and would therefore be available?

  2. Hi Brooke,

    We provide a list to those who contact us. However, you have a good suggestion and we will provide a public list of available pages soon.

    Thank you for your suggestion!
