This is the 1st page of 6 of the 4th chapter in a small book written by Moissaye Olgin title "Mayn Shtetl in the Ukraine". An older cousin of my father tells me that our family was mentioned in this book, as well as occupation. I chose this chapter because of the title (Rich Men and Learned Scholars). I learned that about 10 years ago when I paid to have the title page and Table of Contents translated, but I could afford no more.

12/3/2012 6:01 AM I see the names Makarewer and Ororowski (or similar). No Malament on this page. But some people are only mentioned by first names.
12/3/2012 1:03 PM I've read all the pages you uploaded. They are filled with a detailed description of a certain Pinhas Makarever, one of the VIPs of the village.
Your relative, Avraham Orarovski, is only mentioned on this page in passing, together with cantor Avraham Ber and Pinhas Makarever. There is no description of Orarovski.
