I was searching for a death certificate for my great grandmother's brother and when I finally found it, is showed that his mother's maiden name was GREENSPAN.

I know my family came >from either in or around Borzna. My question is, what other towns were near Borzna so I can begin to research my GREENSPAN family and add a new branch to my tree?

Rebecca GREENSPAN married my great grandfather Louis ALEXANDROVITZ (Anglicized to ALEXANDER); she was born in about 1865 and he was born in about 1864. Both did come to America.

Editor's Note: Go to, the Jewishgen Communities Database, and click on the JG insignia to the left of the town name. That brings up a locality page for Borzna which has a list of nearby towns.
