Len Weinstein inquired about the family of Sam (Schmuel) Weinstein, who arrived in Providence c.1924, and Sam's brother Max (Mendel), who immigrated earlier. In response, Johanna Becker <ronjohanna@...> wrote in part:

... You say Sam arrived the US through Providence around 1924.  A Srul Weinstein b.c. 1908 arrived Providence on the ship Sinaia out of Constanta, Romania on 1 Oct. 1925. He was born in Jashcov.  The jewishgen townfinder search yields one possiblity:  Zhaskov, Kiev district, Ukraine province, Sov. Union between the wars, c. 1930.  Today it is Zhaskiv, Ukraine.   He was going to his brother Mendel Weinstein at 1327 N. 17th St., Philadelphia.  Could this be your grandfather?  source:   Ancestry for the manifest...

This find is very promising. As I wrote to Len yesterday:

Sam's WWII draft card says that he was born in "Shoshkov" -- which could be Zhashkov, which was located in Kiev Gubernia (province).
