Mark and Tamara Shofron
In 1906 my family immigrated to the US from
Pereyaslav, Ukraine (about 100 miles SE of Kiev.) They
boarded a ship to the US in Libau, Latvia. They lived
a relatively short distance to the Black Sea. Why
would they travel all the way to Latvia to embark for
America? Any ideas?
