I am pleased to announce that the Kremenets (Ukraine) Shtetl CO-OP
has added more than 50,000 new entries to our Indexed Concordance
of Personal Names and Town Names. We now have a total of 122,433
entries in the Concordance. The Concordance is a master index to all
of the documents we have translated over the past 10 years.

Vital Records 57,875 entries
Revision Lists 53,879
Central Archives 4,734
Yizkor Books 3,270
Other sources 1,830
see/see also refs 1,549

The increased number of entries results >from the addition of newly
translated (but not yet proofread) revision lists for Kremenets
District Towns. To search the Concordance using Steve Morse's
One-Step Search Engine, go to:

new entries accessible.
