Finding your shtetl #poland

Milton Goldamt wrote about how beneficial the Avotaynu microfiche of
town names was in locating one of his ancestral towns.
1. The ShtetlSeeker feature of JewishGen on the Web is identical to the
microfiche. People should try to use that first; it is free. It can
Soundex your town name and can identify towns within a radius of a given
latitude/longitude. The Web version has the disadvantage of not being
able to browse.
2. It is not a violation of copyright to donate a purchased copy of the
microfiche to Family History Center. Copyright protects against copying.
