David Pearce is looking for a town written as "Lokshifke, Russia," on
a naturalization document. I believe this is Lukashevka (Russian) or
Lukashivka (Ukrainian), which was sometimes called Lukashifke in
Yiddish. In the 1900s, it was in Lipovets district of Kiev province,
and in the 1930s, it was in Vinnitsa district. Some of the surrounding
towns are Lipovets, Tetiev, Stavishche, Zhashkiv, and Monastyryche.
