I'm having difficulty determining the correct name for a town or city that
might have been in Ukraine or Russia. On The Ellis Island Data Base a
Joseph RUDICK arriving in New York City 1911 Lists his residence as Dublin
Ireland & his city of birth as Feline or Feiline, Russia. His son Isaac
RUDICK arriving earlier that year also lists Dublin Ireland as residence
but then write for city of birth Feline Lepland Russia. Is this an illegible
spelling for annother town or some place that might have a new name? I can't
find it on any maps. Any suggestions welcome. TIA
