Ukraine 1917 - 1922: Post Offices in Podilia

Here is a list of post offices in the Podolia guberniya for which I have cancellations from the 1917 - early 1920s period. I have transliterated from the Russian postmarks rather than giving the Ukrainian names of the places where these former Imperial Russian post offices were located. In the past I had a bigger collection of these cancels, with more offices represented, and this list is certainly incomplete. This List was last updated on 13 September 2015.

  1. Trevor, I don't know if you have access to the Post Office List in spreadsheet form (let me know if you don't - it's great) but it will spit out a list of all offices in Podolia as identified from postal lists. At a guess, I'd say your list above covers about 50% of the offices on that list which is really extraordinary. To give you something to compare that too: after 25 years of collecting I have found postmarks for 53 out of 101 (Imperial) Crimean post offices. I'm still looking for my first Crimean Vol.Prav. postmark, for example...

  2. Ivo: Thanks! I have the paper list prepared by Gary Combs in 1993. That lists 18 000 Imperial post office locations throughout the Russian Empire, so using it manually to pick out offices in one guberniya can be hard work :)
