Len,

A Jewish history of shtetl Zabokrich is written in Russian. Please use Google translate the article.

Hi Len,

I am the owner of the Zhabokrich KehilaLink on JewishGen. Four years ago I created the webpage, which covers a short history of the town, reminiscences of some people who lived there (including my grandmother Dora (Donya) Kravchek Waltman - 1898-1991), information about the cemetery, surnames of some of the families who lived in the town, Holocaust history, photographs I took when I visited the town in 2013, etc. If you haven't looked at it already, you can find the webpage at: https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/zhabokrich/index.asp. You might be interested in knowing that the town's name means "Frog's croak", which refers to the numerous frogs that lived in the large pond in the 'downtown'. My grandmother spoke of them often! 

Take a look at the KehilaLink and then feel free to contact me about any questions you may have. I would be very happy to know if you could provide information about which of your ancestors lived in Zhabokrich and what you know about them. I would be happy to include your surnames and other information you have to the lists on the website. There are also some published works (a book and some articles) that have been published about Zhabokrich, that I provide information about on the KehilaLink.

Best wishes,
