Hi Stephen,
You made a great job, but I am not sure, that it will help people to find
the original records on Raduraksti.
You will not believe how many mails I receive to have the original record...
According to your site, you link only on the first page on Raduraksti and
the researchers dont know where to go...
And , even if they find the page, everything is written in Russian or Hebrew
and sometimes only in German.
Sorry for my English....but I am french.

I was having trouble navigating Raduraksti to find the pages that
corresponded to records in Christine Usdin's webpages, especially
when Raduraksti had things misidentified.

I put together a database that lets you select what you know (place,
type of record, year, etc.), and leave the rest blank. It tells you
which pages on each website (Raduraksti and three of Christine's
websites) have records corresponding to what you entered, and which
pages on each site correspond to each other....
