How to find UKRAINE birth and marriage records #ukraine #russia #records

Bob,
Perhaps someone else can chime in about the more recent records, but here is the info found in the 1875 census.  This was a census that was created as a result of the previous year's law about implementation of a mandatory conscription of men into the imperial army.  The census only consisted of eligible men and didn't have the entire population documented.  For example, women were not included.
You probably know this, but just to reiterate, names like Herman, Irene, Evelyn, Simon, Gertrude are Americanized and not what your ancestors were called in Podolia.
Solomon might have been called Shlioma, Simon - Shimon, etc.  The others you would have to find through the original naturalization or other documents.

It's possible that Duvid below is the same David you mention, but probably not possible to tell without having some additional documents.  Also, not sure how Ios is related to Leybish.

The 1875 census for Novaya Ushitsya
Name - previous census - current age
Ios s.o. Duvid - 24 - 40
Duvid (son) - 1 - 19
Srul (son) - - - 14

In the supplemental section of the census:
Leybish s.o. Mortko - 24 y.o - lives in Staraya Ushitsa (Old Ushitsa)
Shlioma (brother) - 16 - died
Shlioma (1st cousin) - 16 - lives in the shtetl Brichany, Khotin uezd

I briefly looked through the pages of names in Staraya Ushitsa and found Leybish:

Leybish s.o. Mortko - 35
Aron (son) - 12
Mayorko (son) - 7
Shlioma (son) - 1

A little delayed in my reply. sorry. Yes, the name was Duvid. As said earlier, his spouse was Ruchel and I do not know her maiden name.

The children I am certain of are Simon (Shimon) b. July 19 1881, d. Mar 1963 in Philadelphia. Shimon was my great-grandfather. He also had a daughter, Clara (original name or DOB 1887 d unknown), Samuel (Shmuel) born in Commetoes in 1887 and died Apr 1963 (not certain where but most likely Philadelphia. Lastly, Morris (b 1/10/1892 in Commetoes and died 6/23/1959 in Philadelphia. My guess is I was also wrong on Duvid - I suppose Commetoes is the most likely place of birth.

I have run across the name Mortko but haven't been able to place him. Are you suggesting he was also Duvid's son. Lastly, I am unclear about the original comment made Ios s.o. Duvid. Was Duvid's father also Duvid?

Sorry for my delay in replying. I couldn't find the original post then saw your comment. The town name was spelled incorrectly: Nova Ushytsia (Khmelnytska).

Bob,
"s.o." - shorthand for "son of", as in Ios son of David.

I listed the people with the last name you asked about in the Novaya Ushitsa documents.  Notes for one of the families states that they live in Staraya Ushitsa now, so I check records for that town and found Leybish there, along with some additional family members.

Are there any birth records from about 1895 from the shtetl Kolonie L'vove in Kherson Guberniya?

Don't know if the vital records exist for this particular settlement, but there is definitely an 1858 census, that it is included in. 
Actually, L'vovo can't be considered a shtetl as it was organized as a Jewish farm colony.
You can reply directly to me with the last name(s) and I will check if they are present in the document.
