Classification: Query
Surnames: Saslavsky
I would start by searching for the name Saslavsky on the JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF) at where you will find dozens of other researchers who are researching the Saslavsky surname (or variations of it), many in the Ukraine. In fact, three of the researchers are specifically researching the Saslavsky surname from the town of Kirovohrad (the current name of Elizabetgrad), Ukraine. I would start by contacting those three researchers and seeing where your families might interconnect. Keep in mind that one of the researchers hasn't been online in more than 5 years, so may not be reachable. Actually I see another mention of that researcher here:

and that hasn't been updated since 2006, but perhaps the e-mail or phone number as still accurate.

Make sure to search the surname with the 'Sounds Like' setting to get all the spellings. You'll see the three that specifically list Kirovohrad in that list of dozens of researchers, but there are also other who did not list a specific town, but are still researching Saslavsky from the same area, and may be worth contacting as well.
