Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Re: Searching for Wischnefsky in Rosonsky #galicia

There was no place called Rosonsky in Galicia and the name
Rosonsky intuitively does not seem correct. Is it possible to post
a scan of the page >from the Passenger list? Perhaps the spelling
will then leap out if the writing is poor or unusual.

seen a town called Rosonsky before?
