The name looks like Czerwinski. If you look at the New York arrival
of the Neckar on Nov 25, 1903 you will find Mandel Czerwinski. He is
passenger #23 on the manifest page. On the same page are, what
appear to be two relatives of his, Abram and Beile Czerwinski from
the same place. Looks to me to be Slawinsk

I've posted a petition for naturalization handwritten in English
which I need an interpretation. It gives the name as "Max Chervin
formerly known as Mendel ???" I can't figure out what the surname
and would appreciate as many interpretations as possible. Without
original surname, I can't find any records.
Also, I can't figure out what the name of his birth place is in
Russia/Poland. I'd appreciate any and all interpretations of that,
I've posted the entire document in order to provide enough sample
handwriting to help with interpretation.
The document can be found on ViewMate here:
