My mother, born 1898, lived in Lysanka and nearby Zvenigorodka, southeast of Kiev. She spoke of her life in Zvenigorodka and how she came to Philadelphia >from there in early 1914. Her father was a miller. She had two sisters and a brother who was killed at the front in WWI. One sister came to the U.S.with her. The other sister remained in Zvenigorodka, moved to Kharkov, married there, and had two daughters. She survived WWII. One of the daughters and husband were murdered by the Nazis in the holocaust. The other daughter survived the war and married a man named Shvartsman and moved to Kharkov. My mother's family name was Podkaminsky.

Is there a memory book concerning Zvenigorodka and environs? Are there census lists or other sources of information that would tell about the life of this family? Please contact me as below. I am 90 years old and hope to get some information before it is too late.
