My great-uncle listed his town of birth, on US passport application, as "Gitzinit
Vilinsky,Russia." No possibility of mis-reading, He was 4 years old on arrival in
the Us with parents and siblings. We have no other information about where the
family came from. They sailed out of Hamburg for the US, arrived in Philadelphia in
1887. Ideas? I've been trying to figure this one for years!
Many thanks --
