town name "Karistishow" #ukraine


Marc D. Machtinger <marc@...>
 

Dear SIG Members:

I have a naturalization record for a family member who came >from Russia
(present day Ukraine). The town of birth is listed as "Karistishow,"
however, I cannot find any such town. Would someone kindly suggest to what
town this might actually refer?

I also have a reference to the town "Chorkas" which is also spelled
"Charkoss(e)." I am assuming this town must be "Cherkassy" on the Dnieper
River. Would anyone suggest otherwise?

Finally, there is reference to a town "Chicos." Can anyone suggest what
town this could possibly be?

I appreciate any assistance. Thanks.

Very truly yours,
Marc D. Machtinger, Buffalo Grove, Illinois
