Re: Bessarabia vs Bazar #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>

According to "Where Once We Walked, Second Edition" Bazar was a town in the
Kiev region of Ukraine, 110 km NW of Kiev. The same name was also used for
a small town (22 Jews between the World Wars) that was near Chortkov, 77 km
NNW of Chernivtsi. This is also in modern Ukraine and was in the Austrian
Province of Galicia prior to the First World War. Neither of these
locations would have been in Bessarabia.

Dear Genners,
On my grandmother's and mother's manifest it states that they came from
"Bazar." Is this the same place as "Bessarabia?" Is Bazar in the Ukraine?
