I received 3 very quick responses to my question about the location of
"Pagol Village", suggesting that the name may actually be Pakulš, as found
in Shtetl Seeker. This fits with the information I already have and the town
still exists in Chernihivs'ka Oblast.
I am very grateful to the respondents as well as to JewishGen for helping me
this will make such a difference in my next research steps.
