I am working now on a KehilaLink website for town of Tarutino, Bessarabia,
now in Akkerman district, Odessa Oblast of Ukraine.
The town has an interesting history. It first was established as German
colony in 1814, and Jews were allowed there at the last part of 19c, and it
had almost 2000 Jews in 1897. I found some information already, including
an old map with Jewish Cemetery right in center of Town.
The other town's name was Antchikrok or Anchiocrac.
If you have any photos, old and new of the town, Family stories - I know
that there are a number of families related to that town, Family trees,
Travel stories, old maps, etc. please let me know.
I am looking forward to hear >from you.
