8/7/2013 7:10 PM Hello Marcella,

What I see here is "Wolodarky". If you use the JewishGen Town Finder Database with this spelling and the "Soundex" method of search, you will find a town with a similar spelling. As spelling really doesn't count right now, check this out. Please feel free to let me know if you need any help....Jo

Good luck, Olga Parker
