RUDIAK. His birthplace was transcribed as:

"Wolaskic Mecherynce, Russia,"

but I can't figure out where this is in the ShtetlSeeker. Can anyone help

is? To give you an idea of location, the family memory says that he was
from "Gubernia Kiev" which I know means the province of Kiev in the

Thank you,
Deborah SCHEIMER, deborah.scheimer@...

Town name is Volokhskiye Makharintsy [voloh skee yeh mah kah reen tsee] near
Kazatin, the matso soup belt between the Vinitsa and Zhitomir.
