POVLOTSKY #ukraine


MERYL RIZZOTTI
 

My family, named Povlotsky (and various spellings)
left Ukraine and traveled to Philadelphia via
Liverpool. However, the ship manifest stated they were
picked up before going to Liverpool >from Hango,
Finland. Actually, all of the passengers leaving from
Hango were listed as having a nationality of
Russ-Finn. I am fairly certain that they were not
Finnish. They also came >from Elizavetgrad,
Zvenigorodka and Shpola according to various documents
I have found. The ship passage was paid in
Philadelphia and sent to Elizavetgrad. Has anyone ever
found people >from that area leaving >from Finland to
the US? One of the Povlotsky women married a man samed
Sroel Braun who later changed the name to Brown. So if
anyone out there knows about the Braun/Browns I would
like to know.
