Resources for the Genealogist



Maps of Ukraine - this website that has 1:100,000 topographic maps of the Ukraine. These maps are dated 1942 and show villages that had less than a thousand people at the time. We were really impressed with the detail that could be seen in these maps. http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/EART/maps/ukraine/ukraine.html

The JewishGen ShtetlSeeker (Maps) - The U.S. Defense Mapping Agency (DMA) provide foreign geographic names information from the Geographic Names Database (GNDB). GNDB foreign geographic names information is used to prepare country gazetteers of feature names approved by the US Board on Geographic Names (US BGN). ShtetlSeeker Functions: Search the towns in Central and Eastern Europe, using exact spelling or the Daitch-Mokotoff Soundex system. This search will display latitude and longitude for each location, as well as the distance to the country's capital city. List all of the towns within a certain distance of given latitude / longitude coordinates. (You may find these coordinates using the above town search). http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/
