JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen The other Jewish Named Towns #general

Hi,

One of the Genners has pointed privately that there others "Jewish named"
towns located out of the Slavic lands regions.

Reason that I have been concentrating on the Slavic land, it that sources
that I have been using providing description or some hint where those towns
were located.

Lithuania

In Lithuania alone, there are about 50 localities starting with word Juod
(Jew). Some of them as it was already discussed previously, are Karaims
settlements near Trakai (Troki) and Panevezys (Poniewiez). There are
probably also settlements established by the offsprings of Khazars, after
the destruction of the Empire.
