Additional revision lists for the towns of Golshany, Oshmiany, Soly and
Traby were distributed in March. Oshmiany District, which was in Vilnius
Guberniya during the Russian Empire period, is today in Belarus.

Additional revision lists for nine other towns in the Oshmiany District
remain to be translated. Needed is a coordinator for the Oshmiany District
Research Group. If you are interested in filling the post, or can recommend
someone who may be willing to serve, please contact Howard Margol:
I shall be happy to work with a new coordinator until he/she is comfortable
in the role.

If you wish information about the Oshmiany District Research Group
and the data it has generated, please contact me.

I am trying to locate the following five members of the Oshmiany District Group whose email addresses are no longer valid: Jerry Caplan, Edward M. Kaplan, Allyson Levin, Ronna Newburger, Donald Stone. Any help with contact information will be much appreciated.
