Albert Singer <al2chris@...>
In 1880, my gf, Ben SINGER, came to the USA >from Russia via Hamburg on the SS
Weiland. The manifest says he came >from the town of Schinane in Russia...
The name of the town has been verified by a member of the emigration staff
in Hamburg >from the original document but we have been unable to find this
town. Does anybody know where it might be or have been?
