I noticed that two of our members who posted messages this week are
researching towns that are quite close in proximity. The 1st posting
was for Podwoloczyska by NFatouras@aol.com. The 2nd posting was for
Grimaylov by email@example.com
Checking my map I would estimate that the distance between the two
towns is only 10 to 12 miles. Perhaps these two researchers could
check further using the ShtetlSeeker and then contact one another to
compare notes. Just a suggestion!
It would be interesting to see some messages posted about the type of
maps that members are using for their research. I personally keep one
in a looseleaf binder that I refer to practically everyday. It covers
most of Galicia with Lvov in the center and highlighted in bright
yellow marker. Also highlighted are the shtetls I am researching.
The names are always such a challenge but little by little...one day
at a time... they're starting to become very familiar and when close
in proximity, they're close to my heart.
