Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Konotop #ukraine

Would it be possible to have a separate SIG just for
Konotop? (thru Jewish Gen?) This suggestion is not a
criticism of Ukraine SIG. Just an idea so that some of
us can narrow our focus to a very specific area of the
Ukraine. Encyclopedia Judaica (1971) reports Konotop
had a population of about 20,000 a hundred or so years
ago (compared to 97,000 today). Roughly 25% of this
1900 population was Jewish. My Great Grandfather Pavel
MALISOFF (or MALISOV) was the Shoichet/Mohel for the
Hasidic part of the Jewish Community at that time. Info
or ideas anyone?
