Re: Trouble identifying city / town on ship manifest #austria-czech

My great-grandmother is the one I know about whom I know the least of all, alas 

She (née SCHMIER) and her husband (KATSOF) only spoke Yiddish.  They came over to Canada in 1906 already married, but the story was always that they were from very different worlds.  He elsewhere is attached to Novograd (in now Ukraine), but when my grandmother often spoke of her parents she would always make a point of saying her mother (the great-grandmother in question) was born in "Austria," which doesn't help much but at least is consistent.
