In the fall of 2003 I began to search in earnest for information on Jewish Snitkov. It was dismaying but not unexpected to find that very little about this  active town of over 1000 Jews appears in English, nor  in other languages, nor in photos. There were a very few entries in JewishGen's myriad databases and projects.  What I found then and since is on these pages, and research continues. Although the current focus is on the final generations of Imperial Russia, more contemporary information will be included in the future. Little as there is, it is important to publish whatever can be found.
    If you are aware of other sources of information, please share them with me and other visitors to these pages.
    If any of you reading these pages also have roots in Snitkov I hope  you'll not only find something meaningful here, but also will contribute a paragraph or essay concerning what you know of your Snitkov ancestors, recent or distant, including their photos. 

Thank you. Welcome.
