Even prior to attending the conference in Philadelphia, I knew
that I was mispronouncing many of the shtetls, towns and cities
in Poland. At the various presentations, I realized just how
incorrectly I was pronouncing them! Is there a resource on
JewishGen or any other website that lists them and includes the
phonetic pronunciation? Such a guide would, I believe, be very
helpful to those of us without familiarity of the Polish language.

Judi,

Pllease try to use one of the following guides:
