Re: Where is "Megibogi? #general

Dollars to donuts this is a poor transliteration of Medzibezh, the
Ukrainian town in the area that the Baal Shem Tov and his followers lived.

The family is >from Khotin, Ukraine, but stayed in England for
a few months before coming to the US. On this passenger manifest, it
states that the last permanent residence and place of birth for Leiser
Berenberg is "Megibogi." It does state that he is Russian. Does anyone
have any idea what where "Megibogi" is or what name it could refer
