Who am I? Where do my ancestors come from? Where specifically in eastern Europe are the villages where my parents or grandparents were born? Do those villages still exist? In what country are they located today? These are the questions which the third revised edition of this enormously popular large-scale color wall map and gazetteer can answer.
