Family research help in Poltava, Ukraine and Kaunas, Lithuania

My grandmother, Taybe Ieta Meleryte was born in Poltava, Ukraine in either 1917, or 1922 to a family who ran a Pulp and Paper Mill business in Poltava.
She fled to Kaunas during the russian revolution where she married Julius Pfifferling and left for England and then South Africa.
Little is known of her family as she died when my mother was little.

thank you for any assistance

I have successfully retrieved the marriage certificate from the Kaunas, Lithuanian State Achivist.
Her middle name appears to be spelt Yeta based on the lettering.
so variation would be Taybe Yeta Meller [ Meler / Meleryte ]

Any advice on how to go about searching for her family is appreciated.
I have limited funds so would prefer if possible recommendations on who to contact, and places to look.
I have already begun researching the history of Poltava, and as my grandmother fled to Kaunas, any links between the two places.

Taybe or Taibe's parents have potentially been identified as Mausas (Movsha) Meler and Freida Kaplan.
A family tree if correct has identified their children as
Gershel Ovsei Leib Meler - born 12 December 1911, Grinkiskis
Taube Lenta Meler - Born 1917, Poltava (My grandmother, note the spelling difference).
Guta Leia Meler - Born 1921 in Russia

Any assistance on how to pursue finding their family would be appreciated.

Poltava:
Capital of the above-named government. It had a small Jewish community, almost entirely Ḥasidic, before Jews from Lithuania, Poland, and other parts of Russia began to arrive there in larger numbers after the great "Ilyinskaya" fair had been transferred to that city from Romny in 1852. A Sabbath- and Sunday-school for Jewish apprentices was established there in 1861 ("Ha-Karmel," Russian Supplement, 1861, Nos. 46-47). Aaron Zeitlin then held the position of "learned Jew" under the governor of Poltava.
