Cadastral Maps and Landowner Records
Out of some 50 people the Coordinator did surname/given name searches for, eight KRG members/non-members requested full reports and made donations to the Gesher Galicia Cadastral Map Project in the name of Kolomea. Our account there now is about $800.
Surname/Given Name Searches
Two new search requests have been completed since last report. The door is always open for new requests to conduct surname searches and report given names found.

KAD Web Site
The Kolomea Administrative District Web site has been updated with surname origins or meanings for the following surnames: Bernstein, Einhorn, Engler, Feingold, Heller, Nachman, Schoss, and Singer. The information for these additions was provided by our surname-origin maven, KRG member Saul Zeichner. Thanks to assistance by Barbara Ellman, the revised file was uploaded to http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/kolomea/kolomad.htm. At the Web site scroll down to Surnames of Interest and then click on the Origins and/or Meanings link.
We are still searching for a member to take over the task of Webmaster. The site’s update is falling behind.
