Re: Kremenets region - Village of Kolosova #ukraine

Ellen Garshick

Hello Arkady,

I'm not aware of a Kolosova in the Kremenets district. Could it be the town of Klesov (Klesiv [Ukr], Klesov [Rus], Klesów [Pol], Klisov [Yid], Klosova, Klosowa) in the Rovno district? The JewishGen Communities database (  shows this town at 51°20' N, 26°56' E.

Other online (not verified) sources give Yakov Kamenetsky's birthplace as Kalushkove, Lithuania, or Kalushkova, Minsk province, Belarus.  You might search the JewishGen Gazetteer for these towns ( and see if records and other resources are available for them.

Best of luck,
