From: <>
I was searching the new listings online >from the Hamburg passenger lists
and I came across the name Masche JORDAN aged 19 >from Talsen in Russland.
This person left Hamburg in October 1891 --it could be more of my family.

Anyone have any ideas about this name?
I had an uncle whose hebrew name was Moshe. He was known as Mashe (or
Masche), Pronounced with a long "a" as in Pace.
I believe that the name Masche, pronounced with a short "a" as in
Part, would be feminine..
