Re: Identifying town name from WW1 and WW2 Draft Cards. Maybe in Bessarabia? #bessarabia #russia

Lianne  Shavua Tov,

I was trying to resolve your puzzle and I could not.  There was not such a town (ARJOVONITZ or ARZANOVITCH or similar) in Bessarabia, and likely in the whole Russian Empire.  I even looked into old names of towns and could not find anything.

I also looked into Bessarabia Geographical Dictionary,
where we have towns, shtetlakh and even villages where Jews used to live or/and work,  and the closest place was Arloneshty.

Here is a suggestion to you.   If you have any other information about that person, maybe written on a post card or  letter.  That may help.

All the best,
