Hello Alan, everybody,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I cannot tell you much about creating a website, but I can help you to find old
photos and old maps.
The best site for it is www.oldkishinev.com . It is in Russian, but you can easily
translate with Google. You will see on a menu to the right a section: Old photos
of Chisinau, also Old maps and streets, etc. Under Old photos of Chisihau
there is a section Buildings and streets of Chisinau until 1944 - that might be of
The second great site for this is http://www.monument.sit.md/ that one is in
Romanian, but still you can easily translate. If you know the street name your
relatives used to live - you may even find a house... where they lived.
Ariel, I am not sure if I saw these two sites at Kishinev Kehila website. I think
these two are very important.
All the best and happy researching and good findings.

Subject: Looking for sources of photos of Kishinev pre 1907 that I can use
in a family website
Some of my cousins and I are planning to create a family website that
would include photos of Kishinev pre 1907. Am looking for
suggestions for where I can access or obtain such photos - it would be for a
private family website.
Also, I am interested in learning if anyone has developed a family website that
includes not just family genealogy, but also family history, memories, photos
(not just of relatives). What, if any, template did you use?
