Re: route from Cherkassy, Ukraine to Manchester, England #general


An uncle of mine kept a record of the family's travel from Katerinopol/Ekaterinopol in the Cherkasy Oblast to a ship leaving from Libau, Latvia.
I guess the travel time and the distance between towns could indicate method of travel i.e. cart, train, etc.
This document was originally written in Cyrillic and is a wonderful piece of family history.
