International Tracing Services
The International Tracing Service (ITS) in Bad Arolsen serves victims of Nazi persecutions and their families by documenting their fate through the archives it manages. The ITS preserves these historic records and makes them available for research.



* Seliba may or may not be another name for the village known as Shchedrin. It appears in parenthesis after the Schedrin name on the 1897 cenus, but apparently nowhere else. There was a large farm about three miles out of town called Selibka - could this be the source of the parenthetical entry? There is a town Seliba (Celiba) in Belarus, but in the Igumen uezd. (Information provided by Michael Steinore). If you have any other information, please let us know.
