Hi Sheryl,
I'm in Geni because Ancestry.com is down today. I can see that you tend to list towns in Europe by their modern names, whereas I use the names of the towns when our ancestors lived in them. I'm sure that you know that you can get both names from JewishGen's community database by plugging in the recorded names of towns (usually subject to interpretation because of handwriting and different names in different languages). For Sarah, I came up with Belaya Tserkov, Vasilkov District, Kiev province, Russian Empire as the place where she and her siblings were born. For Rubin, I got Sal'nitsa, Litin district, Podolia province, Russian Empire as his town of birth and Starokonstantinov (town and district), Volhynia province, Russian Empire as his last residence in Europe before emigrating. For Sarah, I used passenger lists; for Rubin, I used naturalization documents. I left it up to you to change place names if you want.
