Re: Rovna Poland or Russia #general

Doug Cohen <DMCohen@...>

Rovno, in Vohlniya, Russia is now called Rivne, in Ukraine. It was
considered Poland in the first decades of the 1900s. Look in Shtetl seeker
under Rivne. There is (or was) a Rovno Society in NYC, according to a
third-cousin of mine whose father was born there (and was one of the few to
escape the mass murder by the nazis in 1941).

My friend's father (Abraham Segal--originally Cygielnik) came to the
United States in 1913. His city of birth was Rovna Russia. His sister
arrived in America in 1922. Her naturalization records lists her place
of birth as Rowna, Poland. As there are a few different shtetls with
similar names, I was wondering if anyone can locate a shtetl named Rowna
that was part of Russia in 1913 and then became part of Poland by 1922.
Any help would be appreciated.
