Re: Help deciphering a town name on passenger Manifest #records #belarus

A link to the entire record (including the first page of this passenger manifest and all the other pages of this ship's manifest) would be useful to compare how letters were formed by this clerk. I could guess that the community might be Klezk (aka Kletzk, which was in Slutsk uyezd). But regardless if one guesses or knows for certain what was written, it is best to have additional sources for confirmation. If you have not yet searched out every record for this immigrant and their family, friends, associates and neighbors in USA records, by all means do so. One record is never enough (especially a record in which information is ambiguous).
