Vishnevets data on Kremenets KehilaLinks website: The Kremenets District Research Group (KDRG) collects documents and datasets for towns of the Kremenets District. Vishnevets is one of those towns. To see what KDRG has available for Vishnevets go to the Kremenets KehilaLinks website (http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/web-pages/about-kremenets.html). On the Research Menu, select Concordance. The Concordance of Personal Names and Town Names is a master index of all information collected by KDRG. Please be sure to read the Introduction and Guide to the Concordance to learn how to interpret the abbreviations in the 'Source' and 'Location in Source' columns. There is a Vishnevets KehilaLinks website, but the site does not have an active 'owner'. Whenever a volunteer steps forward to resume development of the Vishnevets KehilaLinks website, links to the KDRG materials will be added. For more information contact Ron Doctor (rddpdx@gmail.com).
