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

It is not the easiest piece of text to read but I would tend to agree that it could be Kletzk.

As has already been suggested you will need to find some corroborative evidence either from the US or from Kletzk itself to confirm that this is where your ancestors left from.

One source that might help you are the passports that would have been issued to Esther and her son to facilitate travel internally within Russia.

I was able to find the internal passports from 1905 issued to my great great grandmother, my great grandmother and my great uncle, when they travelled from Kletzk to London, England.

Good Luck with your search.
