Although I didn't recall having seen the name of this town before, I did
a few cursory searches in the several gazetteers and other books I own,
but I found nothing much like that spelling.

I would like to know how Mr. Blumberg knows of this town. Was it by word
of mouth, >from a document, >from a ship manifest transcription?

If it was by word of mouth, with what language was that mouth most
familiar? If it was >from a document like a naturalization paper, was the
person who filled it out literate in writing English? If it was >from ship
manifest was it an Ellis Island's text transcription (which are often
garbled), or was it >from viewing the image of the actual ship manifest
( not that what ships' agents wrote down was always accurate).

And has Mr. Blumberg tried using Jewishgen's ShtetlSeeker?
