Does anybody know anything about the shtetl of Klichkovich(i) in the
Ukraine. I know that is is SW of Kovel and near Turisk. According to a
family oral history, my grandfather was born there.
Stewart,

Village is known nowadays as Klichkovichi located at 51o09' 24o29'. It is as
you have described SW of Kovel and near Turiysk.
Village or rather small agriculture colony was known in the interwar Poland
as Kliczkowice.

What is probably even less known is that Kliczkowce and near by villages:
Milanowicze (Milyanovichi) , Tupaly, Wolka Kowelska, Lubliniec, Hrydki,
Czerkasy, Turowicze (Turovichi), Olszanka, Kalinowka, Kliewiec, Rudniki and
Kruhel have been all part of centaralized village Stare Koszary. Stare
Koszary are known as Staryye Koshary, but several of those colonies are not
shown on the maps.

Jewish names that can be traced to the local villages/colonies through the
1929 Poland Business Directory are:

P.KAC (KATZ),
J MILSZTEJN (MILSTEIN)
S. GOLFEDER
M.ZEGARMISTER
Ch. GURWIC (GURWITZ)
