Tordobis #ukraine

Paul Mayerowitz

I have determined that my family roots were in Krisover, modern day Krivoye Ozero. I reached this conclusion after reviewing numerous immigration papers and a document listing the Jews of Krivoye Ozero from 1920-1921. A cousin, who was brought to this country by my grandfather, was in a book about Philadelphia. The author stated he was from Tordobis. I contacted the author, who would not cite his source. Another individual’s website also cited Tordobis as his birthplace but could not provide a reference source. 
Tordobis is allegedly in the Ukraine but I cannot locate any references to it. Has anyone heard of this location?

I am not sure if this helps, but there is reference to Tordobis, Russia online at
As it appears Russia and Ukraine keep changing ownership of realestate, this might be a reference to the town you are looking for.
Best of luck to you.

I found nothing when I googled Tordobis Ukraine or Tordobis Russia. 
But I did find something that might be a good resource for other places there:

Maryellen Tobiasiewicz
family from: Bielsko-Biala powiat Poland
Gorlice powiat Poland
Lviv Oblast Ukraine

This is one of the sources that indicated Morris was from Tordobis. I asked the author of the book he wrote on the Arsenic Gang for his source and he would not provide his source.
