I need some help in interpretting a town name found on the Ellis Island
The town looks like "Szeklenza" or "Szekleuze". The records listing that
town are for a Mozes Tambor who arrived in 1908 and a Sapsze Schapsovics who
arrived in 1909. I suspect this town is in the Transcarpathian area. Thanks
for your help.

Moderator VK: You're probably looking for Szeklencze, also known as Szokirna and Szokirnicza. It was in Huszt jaras (district) of Maramaros megye. The 1877 Gazetteer reports that there were 378 Jewish residents who worshipped in Munkacs.
