JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen From 1930 Census: Where in Lithuania? #general

LindaJim Morzillo <jmorzil1@...>

I hope that someone can help me figure out the place (Zahina?) stated - not
clearly - on a page of the 1930 census. Please look at:

This family, distantly related to me, consisted of parents born at this
place in Russia and their three children born in Pennsylvania. My family
came >from the Raseiniai area of Lithuania, the closest to that spelling and
geographical place is Zuikine as shown in the JG Shtetl Seeker.

How would the person taking the census hear the birthplace spoken by these
immigrants with Yiddish accents? Would it be a good guess that Zuikine is
where they meant? Other vital records just have Russia filled in and the
parents did not become citizens.

Thank you!
