Esther Rechtschafner asks why emigrants from southern Ukraine did not go south to the port in Odessa. I also wonder about this. The Ellis Island website lists only 265 emigrants who left from Odessa during the years 1892-1924, all in 1906-1907 with a handful in 1922. Perhaps because Odessa was an important naval port, civilian emigration from there was restricted.
