I am one of the researchers of Kolonia Lvovo, Kherson, Ukraine. It is
located on Dneiper River between Kakhovka and Kherson. It was established
around 1841 by Jews >from Courland and existed for a 100 years as a Jewish
Shtetl. There is more information at

We have an 1877 map with about 90 houses. We have recently added
translations at which
include about 85 surnames.

Latvian Archives helped trace two families that moved >from Courland to Lvovo
around 1840. K(O)ENIG(S)FEST family came >from Hasenpoth (now Aizpute) and
ABRAMSON family came >from Bausk. A search of All-Latvia Database produced a
lot of matches between surnames in Courland and Lvovo.

If you are researching Courland area you should probably check our list of
surnames, as many family moved to Kherson colonies >from Courland. We are
looking for more links between Lvovo and Courland.
