Milestone: 2,018 Villages Found!

Sometime in May after Dennis found 1,000 villages, and I was scrambling to redesign our Google map to accommodate that number, he said to me, "I think we're going to hit 2,000."

On Sunday, 9 October 2016, he sent me an email: 
"Just entered #2,000Volhynia Colonies Wladislawowka II, Vladislavovka II..."
If your ancestor was from that colony, congratulations!  You're our 2,000th customer!

And so this morning, finding another limitation of Google maps, I scrambled to slightly re-design the full map again to make sure I can bring you all 2,018 villages in one map.  Although I hope I won't be re-designing maps every six months going forward, as we always say, this is a work in progress. 

Today we have four map refreshes.

Germans from Russia Settlement Locations Map (all villages):   Includes updates for Crimean and Volhynia colonies listed below.

Black Sea Colonies: Includes updates for Crimean colonies listed below.

Crimean Colonies:  Two additional colonies with alternate ancestral names.  This was a request we had from one of our readers that we were able to fulfill quickly.
Lustigtal, Pascha-Tschokmak, Pasha-Chokmak, Sary-Pasha-Chokmak, Chkmak, Hochfeld

Volhynia Colonies: Additional 88 colonies.  Alternate ancestral names included, so there will be duplicates; check the districts and coordinates to be sure you have the right one.
