Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Town of Satischitz? #galicia
Steven Schutzman <Sjsmpic@...>
"Satischitz" was the town of birth written on a 1909 New York
passenger arrival list for a relative [APFELBAUM] born about 1860 who,
according to both the 1891 and the 1901 England Census, was born in
Galicia, Austria. It was transcribed by Ancestry as "Satischitz", and that
does look to be a fair interpretation. But I have been unable to locate a
town in either the Gesher Galicia Town Locator or the JewishGen
Gazetteer. For what it's worth, the man's father may have died in
Germakowka (Borszczow District). Do you see other possible
transcriptions? Do you "hear" names of possible Galician towns that the
recorder might have actually heard which resulted in the making of this
I've posted the image on ViewMate.
