Searching for Modern Names of Bukovinian Cities #general


s_wiener@...
 

Hello, Genners,

Once again, I am reaching out for your excellent
assistance. I have found several different EIDB
records for family members who arrived on different
ships over a course of 25 years >from the Bukovina.
Four cited their native city as Leszkowka [Laskowka,
Laskovka], Austria - a place I cannot locate. Two
other entries show Remien Sarath, Roumania or R.
Szarad, Roumania. And five show Paschkanz [Poskany,
Bascans] Roumania.

Most other family members came from, were born in or
left contacts in the cities of Viznitsa and Chernovtsy
[Wiznitz and Czernowitz at the time] or other towns
nearby such as Kadobeste, Kotsman, Miliye and Putila.
I have tried searching for towns on Shtetl Seeker
within a twenty mile radius of each city. I have
tried internet searches. Liskovets is the only
remotly close match I could make.

Laskowka and Laskovka are surnames but not locations.
Remien Sarath does not produce any matches either.
Paschkanz doesn't match anything on the web at all.

Any help or direction would be appreciated. If anyone
wants to look at the EIDB entries for him/herself, I
will gladly forward the specific names and dates of
entry.

Please reply privately, unless the response would be
of interest to other Genners.

Many thanks in advance for all the wonderful
assistance I know you will provide.
