Dear researchers,

I was responding today on an email and was looking up something on internet, and found a terrific place about Jewish towns and shtetl in Ukraine.  Some of them were part of Bessarabia, like Khotin, Novoselitsa, Akkerman, and many more.

Here is a link:
Site was created by Jewish Religious community of Zhmerinka.

It is in Russian, but it is easy to translate... just click with right mouse and you will see Translate to English, probably similar with other languages.

It lists shtetl by current Oblast in Ukraine, also there are maps with Jewish population, and statistical information.

All the best,
Yefim Kogan


Thank you but ... Sorry - how do I translate to English? Is there a particular place to click and see "Translate to English?"

when I right click on my mouse, on a Mac,  there is a translate to English in the list.  I selected it and voila!

"Sorry - how do I translate to English?"

For any website that is another language, open it in Google Chrome, and it will translate for you.  Everyone should have a copy of Google Chrome to translate for you.

Internet Explorer will do that if you right click on the site, but Microsoft isn't supporting that any more.
