I have ancestors from an area of Russia that I understand is now in Ukraine. This was the exact place as given by my grandmother, where her father was from: Stuchency, District of Letcheff, Province of Kaminitic, Podollski, Russia.
I can't find that on any maps. I am not sure where this is now. I'd like to find out, as I'm looking to research my genealogy in that line. The family was the Zurowski family, although I'm not sure how they spelled it in Russia. My great-grandfather was Harry Zurowski, and he had two brothers--Sam and Adam, and two sisters--Nastia and Titania. Their parents, I'm told, were Eliprilifar Zurowski and Maria Trofemshak, which I cannot find anywhere--those names don't seem to exist. Eliprilifar was supposed to be a guard in the royal palace. Which royal palace? I dunno. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
