JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Identifying town names from Port of Entry Manifest #general
Will someone kindly please take a look at my grandmother,
great grandmother and Gr. uncle's Port of Entry Manifest?
Can't post the entire page, but if you need to compare
handwriting >from other passengers on the manifest, the
details are as follows:
Ester GLASS (born 1898), Zipe GLASS (nee SHIFFMAN, born 1869)
and Abram GLASS (born 1899) arrived Ellis Island on August 17,
1909 out of Libau on The Birma. They are passengers 14, 15, 16.
I have 3 questions:
Last Permanent Residence
2. Street Address in Pittsburgh where they are going to be
with my great grandfather, M. GLASS
3. Place of birth for Zipe
Tried to make them out, but can't identify the towns and
street address in Pittsburgh, PA.
Presumably both the place of birth and most recent residence
are in the Ukraine (approximately 85 miles southwest of Kiev,
near a shtetl called Belilovka), but that could be wrong and
am hoping someone will recognize the towns.
Please respond privately.
Thank you and Happy New Year,
