JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Searching MILLMAN, Horodkovka/Myastkovka near Trostanetz, Ukraine #general
My name is Victor Miller and I live in Silver Spring, Maryland (a
suburb of Washington DC). Recently I visited Ukraine trying to find
out more about my grandfather who lived in a shtetl which goes under
a few different names: Gorodkovka, Myastkovka, or Horidkovka. My
father changed his name when he arrived in South Africa. His original
name was MILLMAN.
My grandfather's name was Hershel Millman, and his wife was Chaya
Millman. My grandfather I believe was killed in a pogrom in
Trostanetz, a nearby town. This sad event took place in or about 1919.
I have managed to find a book describing this tragedy but there is no
mention of my grandfather.
I am trying to find any other individuals who believe their family
lived in this town. My visit to the Jewish graveyard was interesting
to say the least. It is in a sorry condition overgrown with weeds and
There is only one elderly Jewish lady living in this town. She is I
believe in he 80's. According to the local administrator she had two
sisters one of whom was a physician. The lady also indicated that she
had a brother in the United States who send her money to live on.
Unfortunately she had no knowledge of my family.
I would very much appreciate it if you would contact me assuming that
any of the above really interests you.
