Mystery solved Re Residence in Podolia Gubernia but passport from Kiev Gubernia #ukraine
I've discovered that there was a second Voronkov in Russian Ukraine
that's not listed in JewishGen's Communities Database. It's now known
as Varancau (Transnistria) and was part of the Balta District of
Podolia Gubernia in the 19th century. My ancestors' agricultural
colony,a tiny speck on the map now known as Ghersunovca, was
located barely a mile >from this town.
Thanks to all who offered help.
