Re: Sephardic Siddur from the Ukraine #ukraine

One of the speakers at a previous JGSIA Seminar mentioned that
one way that you can tell if you have Chassidic ancestors is that the
Siddur (prayer book) follows the Sephardic ritual rather than the
Ashkenazic ritual. This would lead me to believe that your family might
well be Chassidic in origin.

Does anyone know if there were Sephardim, or Sephard-descended
families in southwestern Podolia? Apparently my family used a
Sephardic prayer book in Snitkov at least around 1900 to WW I years.
I haven't yet come across any info in English to suggest a migration
