Missing Shtetl and Location #russia


pmayerowitz@...
 

Family stories are told that my Great Grandfather, Moishe Mayerowitz, was killed in a pogrom while his wife was pregnant.  This might explain why my grandfather was named Moishe ben Moishe.  Various document indicate his town of origin as Eredub, Krevozerz or Kervosa. I could not locate any of these towns or shtetls.  Other family documents indicate the Mayerowitz family was from Corinty, Polosky Gubernia , Kpielsogo Gubernia, Odessa, Parlwick, Polosky Gubernia , White Russia.  Family members all say he came from Odessa.

 

My research indicates that the shetls of Odessa were:

None of these locations seem to be a match.  Any suggestions on how to overcome this roadblock?

Paul,
Odessa was just a regional town, so the only places that could possibly be considered "Odessa shtetls" would be the surrounding villages and maybe nearby town of Mayaki.  The rest of the places you identified are just various localities some many hundreds of kilometers away from Odessa all over modern day Ukraine that have no relationship to Odessa itself.  Liubashevka, Savran, Ananyev were not even in the governorate as Odessa.
As far as the locality question about "Eredub, Krevozerz or Kervosa".  The last 2 sound like a butchered version of Krivoe Zerkalo, a shtetl in the Balta uezd of the Podolia governorate, where there were massive pogroms in late 1919.  https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/community.php?usbgn=-1043802.  Perhaps, you can share some documents that have mentions of "Eredub" to see if someone can make sense of what it actually states.  None of these are a thing either - Corinty, Polosky Gubernia, Kpielsogo Gubernia, Parlwick.  Polosky Gubernia is likely Podolskaya gubernia (Podolia governorate in Russian).
 
JDC has a list of victims of the Civil War era pogroms that has 4 different Meyerovich families mentioned, perhaps, you can find familiar names:

I agree with the location mentioned by Mike.  My family’s shtetl was Krivoye Ozero, or Krivozzer in Yiddish.

Perhaps I am confused, so allow me to ask a follow-up question.  Is White Russia not what is now Belarus rather than Ukraine or did they overlap?
