• Topographic Maps of Eastern Europe
JGSWVO member Hap Ponedel is building a website with the primary goal of gathering the widest possible variety of historical maps for Jewish genealogists and researchers interested in the Jews of Eastern Europe. Maps from libraries around the world, as well as online sources, are offered along with links to Jewish encyclopedias to create a historical atlas. Check-in periodically as maps and links are continuously added.
