       If your "Jitomuv" does turn out to be Zhitomir, this might be of 
interest to you.
       Before my grandfather, Eduard Meier, came to the US in 1911, he had to 
provide a letter of recommendation for some reason.  Since I can't read the 
German longhand writing, I'm not sure what it's all about, except for 
verifying that he had good character.  It is signed by his pastor, R. 
Deringer, and several of his villager friends also signed it.  The name of 
one of them was Heinrich Littke.  The official stamp says Zhitomir.  Do you 
have a Heinrich Littke in Zhitomir (or the village of Scheresowka in Volhynia 
on 31 May 1911?
       Let me know please.  Among the other villagers who signed the paper 
were August Chanebauer,  Daniel Nass, and Adolf Rosien.  I can only guess at 
the other signatures.
       Thank you for reading this.
