Dear Kremenets District Friends,

I am pleased to announce that we have added 3,507 entries from 1,072 Vyshgorodok birth records to our searchable Concordance. These records are for the years 1878-1889 and 1895-1900. The searchable Concordance is available on our JewishGen Shtetlinks website at:

Many thanks to Susan Sobel, Judith Springer, and Adam Bronstein for their work on this project. Susan, one of our board members, obtained digital images of the records from the Central Archives of the Jewish People (at Hebrew University in Jerusalem). Judith translated the records. Adam created the searchable entries for the Concordance.

As usual, if, within the past two years, you have contributed to our work in any way (money, documents, services, etc.) you can download the Excel spreadsheet containing these records from our secure Google website:

Please let me know if you have difficulty accessing or downloading the spreadsheet.

If you have not yet contributed to our work, now is a good time. Those who donate either time, documents, or money to our activities receive access to our Google website where we post pre-release copies of all translations and, in some cases, the original documents from which they are derived. The generosity of our members enabled us to complete translations of the Vyshgorodok vital records.
