Geographical Question #general

Pamela Works McCarthy
 

Dear Friends:

My grandmother arrived at Ellis Island in May 1913 aboard the Friedrich der
Grosse out of Bremen.

The manifest lists her nationality as "Austrian". Her last permanent
residence is given as "Galicia" within the city or town of Lanki Male.

I have searched the general discussion archives as well as the archives of
the SIGs, and can find no matches to this particular location.

Has anyone ever heard of this town? Is it mis-written? Any help would be
greatly appreciated.

I might mention Oholei Shem by R' Shmuel Gottlieb. It lists all
Orthodox rabbis world-wide circa 1912. Included are short
biographic sketches, addresses, and often descriptions of the
congregations etc.

The was was recently re-printed in Israel (photo-offset) and should

Re: ukraine digest: November 10, 2006 #ukraine

from 1865 (until 1895), would anything major have happened to make families
leave Dvinsk and move to Kiev? For example pogroms or other major events or
disasters?

I have heard stories about my great grandfather (who came to live in the UK)
originating >from Kiev, and yet I have documents that state he came >from
Dvinsk.
Dvinsk is now Daugavpils, in what is today Latvia, near the border with
Belarus. In the 1850's many Jews left shtetls in Latvia and Belarus to
settle on agricultural colonies in the Ukraine. They were promised land
and exemption >from military service in exchange for moving to the
Ukraine. You can find information on these agricultural settlements,
including names and location of the settlements as well as lists of some
of the colonists.
