I search the BASICHIS family >from Koidanovo (now Dzrezhinsk, near Minsk) in
In the Ellis Island database I found four young girls BASICHES, who arrived
by "Aquitania" >from Cherbourg on Sept 9, 1921.
It would be wonderful, but the town of the last residence is clearly typed
as Kojdanor. I understand, that the hand-written "v" and "r" may be
interchanged, but the country is typed as Poland. Minsk was always included
in the USSR and is not in the Western Belarus, which was the part of Poland
until the WWII.
I couldn't find Kojdanor in Poland, the name doesn't soud like a Polish
word. May be the researchers of Poland know such a shtetl?
I would like to adopt these girls into the family, but how can I manage
their "last residence"?
