I just found on a passenger manifest for two relatives, >from Feb.
1907, that they were born in Skawtian, Russia. The manifest is quite
clear. I never heard of Skawtian and I have no other clues for this
distant branch of my extended family. I checked ShtetlSeeker and it came
up with Skovyatin in the Ukraine at 48 44 26 02. This appears to be in
the Ternopil uzed.
My question is if anyone remembers any other Skawtian or agrees
that it is indeed Skovyatin. I'd also like to know for sure what uzed and
gubernia Skovyatin was in. Thanks for any help you can give me.
