Dear Tarnopol researcher,
I have reserved a KehilaLinks site for a Tarnopol (Ternopil), Ukraine
webpage and am looking for material
A webpage dedicated to one's ancestral home has two functions:
1. Memorialize the Jewish community that once lived there.
2. Provide a resource for present and future generations of the descendants
of the people who once lived in that shtetl.
Here is a list of material suitable for a webpage. If you have any of the
material described below or something I omitted to mention and refers to
Tarnopol, please donate it to the Tarnopol webpage.

. Family Histories - not long schematic Family trees but an account of the
family branch that lived in your shtetl and neighbouring shtetlach and what
they did for a living, etc...
. Photos of the town before the Holocaust
. Photos of the town as it is now.
