Is there such a place as Palestine, Russia??? #galicia #russia


Hello all!

I recently found a US census document for an ancestor of mine which listed the birthplace of his father as Palestine Russia.  Google searches have come up with nothing. Any ideas for where this may have been referring to?  This ancestor would have later moved to Stanislau Austria (now Ivano Frankivsk, Ukraine) as that is where his son was born before coming to the US. 

Thank you for any help or advice you can provide,
Eva Stevenson
