You can find the source info by backing up one level on the site to 

Contemporary, historical, and varying scales of maps are often needed to 
finally find a place of interest.  Sometimes a place is shown on a 
1:300,000 scale that is not shown on the much more detailed 1:50,000 
scale.  One of the biggest advantages of the ShtetlSeeker site is the 
soundex system it uses which very often allows you to find a village based 
on the way your ancestor pronounced it.  But there are also villages that 
ShtetlSeeker misses yet they appear in a contemporary road atlas, so it is 
extremely valuable yet not perfect.
