    This source covers the period before and after the year your mention.


    There were large outbreaks of Cholera.  Could be related to the famines of 1890 to 1892 in Eastern Ukraine.  Families ate tainted foods or drank impure water which led to later Cholera epidemics?

    after some geneology research into the parents and sibling of my great grandfather George Pusakulich I was surprised to learn that 4 of his younger siblings died at 5 years old or younger between 1896 and 1903. this was in the town of Simer (near Perechyn / Uzghorod) in current western Ukraine. I am very curious as to what conditions may have created this.

    Thank you !
