JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Pochapovo Belarus - How far from the Dnieper River? #general

Steve Orlen

Dear Cousins,

Please excuse my ineptitude with maps. My great-grandfather Beryl
MELNIK was born in 1863 & lived in the village of Pochapovo in
Belarus, located at 53 22 - 25 49. He was said by my mother to have
"owned a house on the banks of the Dnieper River." I'm trying to
figure out if this was credible. I've looked at the maps, but can't
tell how far Pochapovo is >from the Dnieper, or whether it is situated
on a river at all.

Best, Steve Orlen Tucson Arizona
