Map Refresh: Siberia

The German colonies in Siberia have been refreshed on the main map and include 117 new colonies bringing the total in that area to 294.

Dennis said that this was by far one of the most challenging maps he's worked on.  During a second pass, he found another 25 villages. You'll see as you go through and look at the data that the sources often didn't agree on the location, and on top of that, the names of the places didn't always show up on Google Maps.  I think he did a splendid job given what he had to work with and deserves a big round of applause for this one.
