JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Help with the name of a Ukranian town #general

Hello Genners!

At least I think it is a Ukranian town. One of my grandfathers hailed
from *Macev* transliterated >from Yiddish, *Matzew* on my grandmother's
ship registry, and something like *Macievitsky* in Russian, according to
refusenik era emigres >from the same family. Its the latter name that I
need help with, as to the correct town name and its spelling. It should
be somewhere near Chernovitsy (or Chernivitsi as on MapQuest). I saw the
town on a WW1 era map when I researched it 20 years ago, but have no
idea if the town still exists. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Karen Jo Rippens
