Hello you all. I found in a french paper someone born in
"BIELOCERKOVO". I know this woman is born in Ukraine. The Jewishgen
database about shtetl names gives five or six approximate names, but
none of them seam to me really near BIELOCERKOVO. Neither google nor
google earth recognize that spelling. has someone more information?
The town you are looking for is known today as Bila Tserkva, Ukraine. The
Russian spelling is Belaya Tserkov. It is in the Kiev region, 48 miles SSW of
Kiev. My husband's grandmother's family, the BALANTZOWs was also >from there. I
hope this helps.
