JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Zyslanow and Altsprelitz #general


I'm looking for some guidance. In looking over the original manifests
from my mother's and her brother's and sister's arrivals to the United
States I have encountered something strange. All the brothers and sisters
came here between 1906 and 1923 and they all declared different town names
as the place they were coming >from (Tuczna, Melna, Strzelicka,
Przemyslany, Zyslanow and Altsprelitz.) All the family was >from Tuczna a
very small towh and only the last brother to come to this country in 1923
put it down correctly. They were all close by (SE of L'vov) except I
couldn't find Zyslanow and Altsprelitz. I'm wondering if anyone has heard
of those 2 towns and also if anyone has any idea why the members of one
family would say different towns. Was there some kind of a quota? Or could
they have been afraid to all say the same town?
Thanks, Leonard Chernos, Fallbrook, CA
