Bessarabia vs Bazar #general

I did a quick google search to look for possibilities
for Channah inquiry concerning "Bazar" and its
whereabouts.
I turned up one site which said that a place called "
"Novi Bazar" which is a strip lying between Serbia and
Montenegro. See:

http://www.bartleby.com/67/1108.html

and another site which talked about the town of
Jaslowiec, known as "Armenian town" and its
inhabitants who would hold large trade fairs in a
nearby village with the "tell tale" name "Bazar." See:

Whether either of these places(if they are separate
places) were inhabited by Jews, I did not investigate,
but given the fact that many Jews were engaged in
peddling and trading I would expect that they would
have had connections with either or both of these
places.

On my grandmother's and mother's manifest it states that they came >from

According to "Where Once We Walked, Second Edition" Bazar was a town in the
Kiev region of Ukraine, 110 km NW of Kiev. The same name was also used for
a small town (22 Jews between the World Wars) that was near Chortkov, 77 km
NNW of Chernivtsi. This is also in modern Ukraine and was in the Austrian
Province of Galicia prior to the First World War. Neither of these
locations would have been in Bessarabia.

I have family (Barankin) that came >from Bazar, which is a small village
north of Kiev.
