Evelyn Steinberg wanted to know where Pogol is. I'm pretty sure she is
looking for Podol/Podil which is a historic district in Kiev.
This >from Wikipedia:
The Podil or Podilskyi Raion, Podil, Podilskyi Raion) is a historic
neighborhood and an administrative raion (district) in Kiev, the capital of
Ukraine. It is one of the oldest neighborhoods of Kiev, the birthplace of the city's trade, commerce and industry. It still contains many architectural and historical landmarks, and new archeological sites are still being revealed.
The Great Choral Synagogue of Kiev also known as the Podil Synagogue is
still in operation.

I assume it is near Kyyiv as the family always said that's
where they were from. I have not been able to locate a town called Pagol
anywhere in the former Russian Empire. Has anyone heard of this town or do
they have suggestions about how I might locate it?
