Dear Genners,

I found my great grandparents immigration record today-they arrived at
Castle Gardens in 1888. I understood that they came >from Lithuania
but the record says their residence was Schalen, Russland and that
they were German. I assume that's Russia but has anyone heard of the
town Schalen or one that sounds like it in Germany? Maybe they just
lived there for a short time before leaving for the US but I'm
wondering if perhaps they married there and if there are records to be
found in this town. I don't see a mention of a town with this
spelling in Jewish Gen. Does anyone have an idea what it could be?
