Personally, I prefer to revisit Ellis Island database to review scanned
manifests. Unfortunately, Jeff did not provide surnames of his ancestors,
and this make search a bit more challenging.
It appears that Starloup should read: Starodub, Russia at 5235 3246.
Town is located in the vicinity of the other known Russian Jewish towns
Novozybkov and Klintsy.
Redjiska appears to be town Radiisk (ex Radinsk or Yatskovka) located some
30 miles >from Starodub.
There are several entries for Radinsk in Ellis Island database, and I assume
that this is correct locality.
On the other hand, Kisherov is, as already few Genners have identified, is
Kishinev in Bessarabia, thus there is a large spread of the town
whereabouts. Perhaps Radiisk is not correct either.
It would be nice if Jeff and other Genners searching for their shtetls
names, will indicate researched by tem surnames and their arrival year(s).
