Dear Friends,

The Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP is pleased to announce that the 1926 Kremenets Residents List has been translated. This list, obtained from the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People, includes more than 5,000 records for residents of the city of Kremenets, including about 3,650 for apparent Jewish residents. For each resident, the list includes surname, given name, motherís and fatherís names, date and place of birth, profession, and notes.

The translation is downloadable from the Translation Spreadsheets, VR section of the KDRG Contributors site (https://sites.google.com/site/kdrgcontributors/documents). In the coming weeks, we will be editing the translation and adding the names to the Indexed Concordance of Personal Names & Town Names, downloadable and searchable from the KDRG Contributors site (https://sites.google.com/site/kdrgcontributors/documents) and the Kremenets Kehilalinks website (http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/web-pages/master-surnames.html).

 

We thank Jack Horbal, Susan Sobel, and Judith Springer for their work on this document, as well as those among you who have made contributions to enable the translation.

The Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP is affiliated with Jewish Records Indexing - Poland, Inc. (JRI-Poland), which is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Your contributions are tax-deductible in the U.S. to the extent permitted by law.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2017,
