Info on Gomel? #belarus


I'm new to geneology and can use some guidance. My grandparents came to the US
around 1907 >from Gomel and landed in Galveston Texas. Where can I find information
about Gomel and about the Jews who landed in Galveston? Is Gomel considered to be a
shtetl? Can I find my grandparents names on any ship manifest or other records when
I dont know what ship they took here or where their point of departure was? Any other
help would be appreciated. Thanks.
