Hi,

in the New York Passenger List he is Simon HIRSCHFIELD, born 1842, on
board of vessel Saxonia, arrived NYC on July, 9th,1866.

At Ancestry Hamburg Passenger List the town really looks like Rutschous:
http://search.ancestry.com/Browse/BookView.aspx?dbid=1068&iid=K_1711_080470-0526
Perhaps one has a better idea...

1866 is not indexed, so you won´t get a result by research ("paging...")

Dear Genners,

Please could somemone attempt to identify this Polish town.

In the Hamburg Shipping List, Simon HIRSCHFELD is shown
departing for NYC in 1866.  His town of origin is given (as
far as I can decipher) Rutschous, Poland (Polen).

Hello everybody,
I wonder why there is no jewish databases for Russia in its current borders.
Has anyone got a clue about this lack ?
Some people of my family were >from Kaliningrad oblast and others went to St
Peterburg at the very end of the 19th century. I can not find anything about
them...
regards
Anne

There are a couple of simple answers. First of all, few Jews lived outside
the pale prior to the last years of the 19th century. Records from
Kaliningrad may be in the Lithuanian archives, I am not sure. Few records
from St. Petersburg will be available in any event because of Russia's 100
year privacy rules. The Mormons have done little to no filming in Russia,
and the Russian archives have not digitized or made available large
quantities of records. You might contact the Russian State Archives and see
if they can do a search for you. Check with Litvak SIG regarding
Kaliningrad (Koenigsberg). The only other option would be to identify a
researcher in each of those places and engage that person to help you find
what you are looking for.
