Dear Kremenets District Friends,

In May, I wrote to tell you that an updated Revizskie Skazki (Russian Revision List, or census) spreadsheet was available on the KDRG Contributorsí Site. I'm pleased to announce that personal names and their associated town names from that update are now included in, and therefore searchable via, the Kremenets Concordance Database Index

With this addition, the Concordance has more than 375,000 entries extracted from various documents and other resources relating to Jews of Kremenets District towns. Of the 1,224 towns cited, the most commonly mentioned are Kremenets, VishnevetsRadzivilov
Shumsk, Katerburg, Yampol, Ostrog, Vyshgorodok, Lanovtsy, Belozirka, Oleksinets, Pochayev, Berezhtsy, and Rokhmanov.

Even as that portion of our work is completed, we're continuing with the following projects: 

  • Kremenets Powiat, Private Business Owners, 1934-1935 and 1936: spreadsheets now posted on our Contributors' Site
  • Kremenits, Vyshgorodek, un Potshayuv yizkor bukh (Memorial Book of Kremenets, Vyshgorodok, and Pochayev)
  • Russian Revision Lists (censuses), 1858-1879 

Many thanks to those of you who have contributed to this work through donations of material, services, and monetary contributions.
