Ukraine SIG #ukraine

I'm thrilled to see some expansion of the area with this SIG, which I
hope will prove a significant help in tracking my family. I've been
puzzled by references to Zhitomir, Radomyschl, Lugin, etc. by various
(all now deceased!) family ancestors. One even said the clan came from
Kiev, but I learned later that any Jews found INSIDE Kiev's walls
after sundown was as good as dead. Now I hope to learn exactly WHERE
the Kaplan clan originated -- and with whom. Howard M. Kaplan,

Jews were allowed to live in Kiev if someone in their family served in the
tsar's army. Many of my relatives came >from Kiev and St. Petersburg.
