Ataki, Mogilev-Podolskiy, Mogilevskie Ataki #bessarabia #ukraine
You may remember I wrote a post where listed new records found, and one from Mogilevskie Ataki. I assumed that this is Ataki close to Mogilev-Podolskiy, because there is also another town named Ataki, not far from Khotin. Also both towns where in Khotin uezd until middle of 19c, after the Ataki accross Mogilev-Podolskiy became part of Soroki uezd.
In the Revision list we found it is written "mestechko Mogilevskie Ataki". I tried to search in English and Russian a place named Mogillevskie Ataki, but nothing found. Records are from 1835, and it was in Khotin uezd at that time.
Here I found an interesting site you can easily translate into English using Chrome, maybe other browsers too. It tells how these two towns Ataki and Mogilev-Podolskiy connected, and how people easily go from one country to another...
Hope to start working on the records soon...
Let me know if you have any questions.
All the best,
