If you go to JewishGen's homepage and search for the town Antonowka
you'll find a listing for a town in Ukraine, near Rovne (now Rivne).
But there are other towns with this name as well, especially if you
spell it as Antonovka or (Ukrainian) Antonivka. For example, there is
also one near Uman. Maps.google.com lists 5 or 6 depending on the
spelling. Some of them are reasonably close to Stavishche.
A great place to find all of these is http://geonames.nga.mil/ggmagaz/
geonames4.asp. It'll give you latitude and longitude and the current
name of the region (oblast) in Ukraine where each of these towns is
found. You can then compare these to Stavishche, and that might take
you further in your search.
