My maternal grandmother, older brother and his family
are listed on the Ellis Island immigration records as
having come >from Jatyn/Jahotin in Russia (in
1902/1903). I haven't been successful in figuring out
where that was (or is).
If anyone out there can help with direct knowledge, or
point me towards a resource that might help, I'd be
very grateful. Thanks!
