Re: old name for location in Ukraine, following up #general


JONES Etienne H.L.F.
 

Answering the request >from many people I posted the 1st page of the vital
record / marriage where a presumed birth town in Ukraine (presumed via
other elements) seemed to be " Coslilinograt ". It is on ViewMate at the
following address . . .
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM32239

My first request took place on past 10 Feb (subject 6) without scan. In
the meantime the problem has been solved : almost certain or certain it's
going about Konstantinograd as result of 1) bad pronounciation by the
declarant, 2) bad understanding by the employee (we're in Buenos-Aires,
employee speaking and understanding probably only spanish, 3) bad trans-
cribing by the employee of bad photocopying ("t" appearing as "l"), so for
example : Konstantinograd > Kostetinograd > Koslilinograd > Coslilinograd
(influence of the spanish).

In 1922 Konstantinograd is renamed as Krasnograd I easily found on a modern
map about 100 km ssw >from Kharkov.

Would it be still any objection ? Please let comments then via the form
provided in the ViewMate application.

I thank very much all who have helped to give an answer to my question
and all possible future additional comments.
