ShtetLinks Project Report for January 2009

By: Susana Leistner Bloch

We are pleased to welcome the following webpages to JewishGen ShtetLinks. We thank the owners and webmasters of these shtetlpages for creating fitting memorials to the Jewish Communities that once lived in those shtetlach and for providing a valuable resource for future generations of their descendants.
~~~~~
Goniadz (Goniondzh), Poland
Created by Michael Rothschild
~~~~~
Illintsi (Linitz), Ukraine
Created by Rick Kolinsky and Richard Collins
~~~~~
Vitsyebsk (Vitebsk), Belarus
Created by Esther Rechtschafner and David Feldman 
~~~~~
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.
We are happy to announce that one of these shtetlach were recently "adopted":

Siauliai(Shavel), Lithuania
Shtetlpage adopted by Assaf Urieli

ShtetLinks webpages recently updated:

Kormend, Hungary
Created by  Judy Petersen

If you wish to follow their example and create a ShtetLinks webpage for your ancestral shtetl or adopt an exiting "orphaned" shtetlpage please contact us.

GOOD NEWS!! As a result for our appeal for HTML volunteers we now have a team of dedicated people who will help you create a webpage for your ancestral home.
Please contact us if you would like help in creating a ShtetLinks webpage.
