Plat Maps #lithuania

Harold Rhode <hrhode@...>

See Howard Margol's note reminded me remember a conversation we had in Los Angeles.

We should all be very much looking forward to seeing a list of Plat maps which exist of our shtetlach in the 19th century, when it eventually arrvies.

As Howard explained at the LitvakSig meeting, these maps show who lived in what houses, and would enable us to find exactly the house where our ancestors lived. We could then visit their houses (if they still exist - which is very likely in many of our towns). There probably aren't many more moving genealogical experiences we could have.
