A really wonderful on-line resource for looking for place names in Eastern
Europe is the Jewish Genealogy Shtetl Seeker
This site allows you to search for place names by country. It allows you to
use the exact spelling of the name or a Soundex type of searching system.
Further, it gives you the latitude and longitude of the location which then
links to an atlas of the area. This allows you to see where it is located in
the country. Further, it offers the opportunity to use the latitude and
longitude to search for all the other towns located within up to 30 miles of
It is a terrific resource!
