Map Refresh: Galizien and Volga Regions

The maps for the Galizien and Volga areas have been refreshed with the latest data.

The Galizien colonies now have links to the Rudolf Untersch├╝tz Map of the German Settlements in Galicia, which the Galizien German Descendants society has obtained permission to use and allowed us to link to from their website.

The Volga map has 46 additional colonies, bringing the total in that area now to 376. The naming standard for current names of defunct villages is rolling out in Volga along with additional sources and links to Google maps of current locations, which often include photos of the village and sometimes other information researchers may find useful, especially in larger towns.

The full Germans from Russia Settlement Locations map has been updated as well.  And as always, you can find all the maps on the menu on the right and on the Maps and Data page.
