Can anyone help me clarify illegibly written town name, please #latvia


BABYCAT3@...
 

On the naturalization papers of my mggrandfather, Jacob KAFLOWITZ, he lists the birthplace of his six children and it is not clearly spelled. Jacob was born in Bielske, Russia and was living in Bialystok when he emigrated to America.

The birthplace listed for the children looks something like:
Raschas
Rasikas
Reschas
Resikas
Racides
Rasikes
The word is followed with a comma and Russia.

If anyone has any idea what this town might be, I'd appreciate your feedback. Also, for whatever the town might turn out to be, any ideas where I would send for a birth certificate on my mgrandmother?

Thank you and please respond privately,
