Original message:

<< I was surprised to find that family members who had always said they were
from Ekaterinaslov (Dnepropetrovsk) were shown as emigrating >from there but
with a different birthplace in Russia.

Does anyone recognize this town name?

I had a look at the image at Viewmate and thought it said "Russia, Balky".

So I went prowling on the internet and found this website:

It shows a map of the area around Bar, Letichev, Deraznja and other towns.

Very near and east southeast of Bar, is Balky.

If Balky is this town, then its records may be found among those
Miriam Weiner lists for Bar in her "Jewish Roots in Ukraine and Moldova."
Some of these records are located in Vinnitsa, others in Kamenets Podolskiy.
