Thanks for all the replys. Perhaps Lukovets, Ukraine makes the most sense for my research. I appreciate you work on my behalf.
Some "sthetl" suburb of Gomel, or even N Ukraine within 100 km of Gomel would be even better! But this is genealogy we are discussing and people traveled a lot farther than we think/thought (at least for me).
Please let me know when I can return the favor!
