Ukraine SIG #Ukraine RE: interim residences before leaving for the US, etc. #ukraine

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz

My parents were refugees in Kishinev, Bessarabia, then Romania, 1919-1923.
My father's siblings were there too, and left for the US shortly before my
parents left. They are listed as coming >from Bucharest! My parents left from
Costanza but on their manifest it lists their home towns in Ukraine. So a
lot depends on who filled out the forms, how the questions were asked, and
how much the respondents wanted to reveal.

correct rendition. >snip<

... I wonder if many Jews took up residence briefly in locations other than
their actual shtetlach of origin before departing for the US or other
