Carlos Glikson
 

The given name looks to be "Kremie." The first "e" is written
like an "i" but is un-dotted. The "i" near the end is dotted.
I took a look at the manifest. Steve's "Kremie" may be a
"Kreine", with the i's dot slightly out of line.

My great aunt's "Kreina" seems to have come >from
Ekaterina - according to her full Russian first name
as written in a 1920s envelope for a letter from
Kharkov, in present Ukraine.

Hope this may give a clue!

Dear Cousins,

My cousin Hirsch GRIMOWITZ arrived at Ellis Island on 3 Oct 1907.
On page 64, at the right end of line 24, he gives his mother's
name as the person left behind. The writing is quite legible.
The given name looks to be "Kremie." The first "e" is written
like an "i" but is un-dotted. The "i" near the end is dotted.

Does the name sound familiar to anyone? Or can anyone read the name
differently.

(It's possible that this woman's given name will bring
together two rather large trees I have of the
Mereminsky family of Slonim.)

Best, Steve Orlen
Tucson, AZ
