Dear Helpful People,

Attached is the Ellis Island record of arrival for my paternal great-grandmother and two of six her children (lines 22-24).

Her name is written as Chaje Worobiev. She gave her sister as the nearest relative left at home. This name and other information is on the far right. I would greatly appreciate any guesses as to what is written.

fyi - her actual name was Chava Vorabyev nee Bayliss or Beiliss. She and the children traveled to Chicago to join her husband Leib Vorabyev. They became Ida and Lou Goldman. Insert laugh here.

Thanks so much,
Nina Tobias
