Re: name translation help

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>

It’s a good idea to include the link to the document to which you refer (or a screen shot). I checked for a manifest and located this one on A. 


I do not see a wife named Srzwa. However, I do see SZYWA, which might be Sheva.  
Searching for the family in census records, I find them on the 1925 NY State Census:
      Jacob, wife Shewa,, dtrs Sonia and Klara (Shewa mistranscribed as Iowa, Sonia as Lonio!!

The third child is on not the 1925 census…  and I have no idea what FIRLA or FIKLA might be.

Jankiel and Srzwa Rosenbaum and their children Sonia, Klara, Filda immigrated from Poland around 1920 to New York.
Any suggestions what SRZWA AND FILDA could be in America?
Where could I possibly look to find a Polish or Russia translation of names?
