Found some interesting articles worth sharing about my hometown in Ukraine.

  1. Hmmm…I thought I left a comment on this when I read it. I read the LATimes article and the jukraine.com (that autocorrected 3 times) article and loved them. I’m doing my genealogy and going to places my ancestors lived. But that’s only in the U.S. and I never thought to inquire in those towns if there are people who might be distant cousins.
    But I can’t imagine what it would be like to return to a town where my ancestors had been forced to live because Jews had to live there under Russian Imperial law.
    This was powerful reading. Wonderful.
