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
city names.

So I recommend everyone use the Jewishgen Gazetteer instead of the Jewish
Communities Database.
