Re: Does anyone recognize this town name? #russia

Like most town names, Rosolovitz brings up a whole list of 'sounds like' names in the Jewishgen Gazeteer. I highly recommend that you look at that.
But I also need to tell you that a death certificate is not a wonderful source of information on an immigrants birth. If the kids were born in the US, they might not remember right. And the informant might be a grandchild or the neighbor.
But we work from what we have. I once spent 2 years looking for somebody in St. Louis, until I found them in NYC.
