Dear Friends,

The Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP is pleased to announce four additions (comprising more than 19,000 name/town combinations) to the freely searchable Kremenets Concordance Database Index: the 1926 Kremenets Residents List, the 1927 Shumsk Residents List, reindexed Ellis Island Database entries for the town of Katerburg (in the Kremenets district), and the 1927 Kremenets Registry of Inductees.

Whatís in the New Datasets?

The 1926 Kremenets Residents 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. All names and associated towns for apparent Jewish residents are indexed in the Concordance.

The 1927 Shumsk Residents list, also obtained from the Central Archives, includes about 460 records for residents of Shumsk, including about 430 for apparent Jewish residents. The information given is similar to that in the 1926 Kremenets list.

The approximately 50 Ellis Island Database entries mentioning Katerburg have been reindexed to include all people and towns mentioned, including (when given) the travelerís birthplace and his or her origin/destination town(s) and contact(s).

The 1927 Kremenets Registry of Inductees, also obtained from the Central Archives, lists Kremenets residents born in 1906 and conscripted in 1927, including surname, given name, date of birth, place of birth, father's and motherís given names, fatherís occupation, and other information. The document includes entries for 365 residents, of whom 120 are listed as Jewish.

Many thanks to Jack Horbal, Susan Sobel, and Judith Springer for their work on the 1926 Kremenets Residents List; Judith Springer for her work on the 1926 Shumsk Residents List and the 1927 Kremenets Registry of Inductees; Paul Silverstone for reindexing the Katerburg EIDB entries; and Adam Bronstein for updating the searchable index.

How do I see the new translations?
