Polish estate near Bela Tserkva PRITZKER FAMILY #ukraine


Susan Miller
 

  1. I would appreciate any help in finding the Polish estate on which my relatives lived from approximately 1875 to 1905. We think it was called Stepanivka. It was near Bela Tserkva, Ukraine. My male relative, David, was the overseer of the sugar beet plantation and factory. When he died (1886) his sons took over. The Polish count who owned the estate offered to help David’s widow (Rose) open a small store on the estate. The count's daughter, Alexandria, was friendly with Rose’s young daughter who was on many summer days invited to spend time at the manor house with Alexandria. We think it may be the Branicki family, but we can’t find the specific Branicki who owned the estate in c. 1886 and who had a daughter named Alexandria.
    Thankful for any assistance in verifying the location of the estate and the name of the Polish count that owned it.
