Genners,

I was reviewing some manifest entries >from 1898, and I believe the Ellis
Island people incorrectly transcribed a town name. Could some of you look
at the following records and give me your opinions of the town name:

Basche, Brane, Morachem Eidelman
SS Kaiser Friedrich, Bremen to NYC on June 16, 1898
Page/Frame 0483, Lines 25-27
Series: T715, Roll 24, Volume 51
Residence listed as "Lifekany" but I think it's something like ______ kassy.

Many thanks.
