Kohanski, Dorothy D. <dkohanski@...>

I have noted the discussion about the town of "origin" in the Russian
records is the town one was registered in. Does it follow that an
immigrant to the USA would use the town of registration as his/her place
of origin in subsequent US records - if a town is given at all. Case in
point - a delayed brith record of one of my relatives gave Olshanka as
the place of origin for his mother, who would be my great aunt. It is
the only clue I have as to where she was from. Does *from* mean born or
registered or what?
