Re: Need help finding information about family from Khiton in Bessarbia #bessarabia

Feldman, Daniel

The correct spelling is Khotin., alternate spellings Khotyn and Chotin. You are likely referring to the district of Khotin which exists in present day Southwestern Ukraine. Within that district is the town of Novoseltsia which has alternate spellings. This region was part of Russia until 1918 when it was ceded to Rumania after WW1. Russia took it back in the years of WW2. Bessarabia is the larger general region that includes Khotin and the current border regions of Ukraine and Moldova.
