Dear Kremenets District Friends,

In appreciation of your contributions to the work of the Kremenets District Research Group, the KDRG Board has a special Chanuka gift for you. We have created a restricted access website on Google Sites, "KDRG Contributors". As a contributor, you can access this restricted website and download the documents we have place there. These include Excel spreadsheets containing all the revision list translations we have done to date, all of our Kremenets vital records (birth, marriage, divorce, and deaths) translation spreadsheets, and the full translation of the Hebrew section of Pinkas Kremenets (including photos). The site is at When you go to this site, the KDRG Contributors site button will appear on your screen, IF you have established a Google account. You can create a free Google Gmail account, or you can just create a free account using your own e-mail address (it doesn't have to be a Gmail address).

You don't have to provide any info other than your name and an e-mail ID, and select a password. Once you establish an account on Google, you will be able to access our Google site simply by logging in to Google Sites. If you choose to create a Gmail account, you can sign up at In the top menu bar, click on the Gmail tab, and then on the "Create an account" button on the right side of the page. If you choose to create a Gmail account, you don't ever have to use it. Just having an account is sufficient to give you access to our site. You will see the KDRG Contributors button ONLY if you have a Google account and I have your correct e-mail address in the Google "permission list". Otherwise the button will not appear. If you have any questions, or if you run into any problems accessing our KDRG Contributors Google Site, write to me at
