Ekaterinoslav, now known as Dnepropetrovsk
Ekaterinoslav was named for Czar Catherine - "Catherine's City". After the revolution of 1917, not only were the Czars overthrown, so was everything they stood for. So the city was renamed Dnepropetrovsk, because it was on the Dneiper River. Because my ancestors knew it as Ekaterinoslav, we'll generally use that name on this website.
Ekaterinoslav is in the center of the Ukraine, on the Dnieper River. The Dnieper river runs south all the way from Dorogobuzh, Russia, northeast of Belarus, through Russia, Belarus, and the Ukraine to the Black Sea.
