Juschanlee and Taschenak

These were two large farms or estates established by Johann Cornies (1789-1848),  Thanks to Google Earth, we can see an aerial view of the location of these two estates.  Juschanlee is presently called Kirove in Ukraine and in the image, one can see the Juschanlee river running through Kirove.  Farther north, the Molotschna river winds through Orlove which was the village of Ohrloff.

Taschenak was located just south-west of Melitopol.  The image shows that the name has not changed.
