Strokowsky, Strokofsz, Strakowsky, Stakowski (Yehuda Laeb - Louis)
Shupack, Schupack, Shupak, Schupak, Schoopack, Szupack (Ita, Yitta - Edith)
from KOROSTYSHEV which is 18 miles >from the city of Zhitomir, and 66 miles
from the city of Kiev.
The parents and twelve siblings immigrated to Toronto, Canada in the years
between 1906-1910. Upon their arrival in Toronto there name was changed to
Sachs, Sacks, and finally SAX.
Any information regarding this family would be most appreciated.

Could it have been Podkamen - Ukraine, not Poland.
Any ideas?

I suggest:
- the Passenger record indicates only the location where the persons
emigrated from; the manifest indicates also the birth place. The couple you
are searching were probably living in "Cwitawa-Poland" before their
emigration but they were born in "Petkamien/Patkemien"

- for Cwitawa... I suggest CWITOWA, a village few km S >from BUCZACZ. You can
look at two ancient maps where we can find Cwitowa written as such:
http://www.saga.inet.org.pl/index.php?a_id=9
http://lazarus.elte.hu/hun/digkonyv/topo/200e/43-49.jpg

This region was annexed to the Austrio-Hungarian Empire after the first
partition of Poland; but it was back to Poland after WWI. After the treaty
of Riga (in 1921, I think) this territory was ceded to UkrainianSSR.
The city was then: CWITOWA,BUCZACZ,TARNOPOL,POLAND
and today: in TERNOPIL OBLAST, UKRAINE; you can find it as C'Vetova in
modern maps (like MapQuest)

- as for "Petkamien/Patkemien" being Podkamen... I don't know... But you can
find 2 "Podkamen" in the region (49°56' 25°19' - and - 49°27' 24°29').
Cwitowa is 95km S >from the first and 78 km ESE >from the second.

I hope this can help

Inquiries to the list about the meaning of a foreign-language word

why, when In most cases the quickest way to get the answer is to do
what I just did -- namely, ask Google.

I don't know Polish at all, so I simply typed in the following:
<wnuczka ( Polish word)> The very first item that came up informed
me -- without even having to go to the recommended url -- that the
Polish word wnuczka means "granddaughter."

Getting the answer >from Google is often far quicker than sending a
