Translations Polish to English, REINSTEIN mother's town #general
I've posted 2 REINSTEIN birth records in Polish for which I need
translations. They are on ViewMate at the following addresses ...
birth of Wigder REINSTEIN 1883
birth of Lea REINSTEIN 1880
In both I'm trying to determine the correct town name, and therefore its'
location of: Malke PELLER, mother of both Wigder and Lea.
JRI-Poland extraction says Pohorlowka, but I cannot locate it in the town
finder or communities database. The father's (Chune REINSTEIN) town is
Kudrynce. I would also appreciate all other details possible-full registration and
birth date, other names and/or locations.
Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Many people can't find towns in the Jewish Communities Database on
Jewishgen. Mady Land is today's version. But for all of them, I
recommend the Gazetteer on Jewishgen. I always use it, as it includes
*all* the places where Jews might have lived, not just the big communities.
In this case, there is a long list of towns named Pohorlowka, or the more
Russian spelling Pogrelowka (Russian lacks a letter with the 'h' sound).
Why there are so many, I can't say, but in the US there are many common
So I recommend everyone use the Jewishgen Gazetteer instead of the Jewish
MODERATOR NOTE: The JewishGen Gazetteer and the JewishGen Communities
Database differ in several respects, which are summarized in the table

Kudrynce was in Borszczow administrative district and Mielnica Jewish
district. Per Google, Pohorilivka is in Zastavnivskyi district. Zastavna
was not in Galicia but just across the border in Bukovina therefore not
found in Galician Town Locator.
