Need help with Belarussian / Russian town name written in English - Viewmate file #general

Bonnie Birns
 

Dear Genners,

I have loaded to Viewmate the World War I Draft
registration cards for my great-grandfather, Benjamin
GOLDBERG (misspelled Bengerman), and one of his
brothers, Philip GOLDBERG. I was told that this
family came >from Horodok (Gorodok), Belarus, near
Minsk. In fact, my great-grandfather is buried in a
plot belonging to the Horodoker Relief Association, in
Beth David Cemetery, Elmont, NY.

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7105
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7106

Looking at the two viewmate files, please look at line
5 - Where were you born. My great-grandfather's
paper, >from Brooklyn, NY, seems to read Schntuiff,
Russia, while his brother's, >from Detroit, Michigan,
looks to me like Chernoff, Chitoma, Russia.

Chernoff could be Charnova or Chernova, which is 32
miles east of Minsk, according to ShtetlSeeker. Does
anyone have any idea what Schntuiff could be?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Thanks to all who responded to my call for help.
The soundex index is indeed a bit difficult but once mastered, not so bad to
use. Converting names to their number "equivalents" is the trick I learned.

Re: SCHMULOWITZ #latvia

My grandfather's sister Zlata's first husband was Jacob (son of Eliokum)
SHMULOVITCH. He was born c 1865 and died in 1898 in Riga. The marriage
took place in Riga but, as Zlata was born in Mitau, Jacob could well have
come >from there also. There were no children - he died only two months
after the wedding, cause unknown, and I have no further details of him
(these were obtained >from the Latvian Archives) but thought this might be
of interest. Zlata's maiden name was JOEL and her second husband was Nochum
HIRSCHBERG.

a relative with the surname KATZIN. Thoughts anyone? Again, I appreciate
