Question About Ukraine to US Travel Routes in 1912 #ukraine

Sheldon Rabin
 

Sometimes, like this morning, going over some long-held documents once
again and more carefully can raise some interesting new questions.

My great-grandmother Rose GOLDFARB and three daughters came over to
the US on the S.S. Kursk in 1912. All three girls were born in Kivertsy,
Ukraine per their U.S. marriage license affidavits, and Kiwrotzi
(presumably Kivertsy) was listed as their last residence on the ship's
manifest. However, when I looked again today at the ship's manifest,
I noticed that their departure port was Libau, Latvia and that later,
on the their naturalization applications, they had listed their last
residence before taking the ship as Vilna, Russia (presumably Vilnius,
Lithuania) and not Kivertsy.

Everyone else in my family tree >from the western Ukraine and
eastern Poland traveled to the US via ships that departed >from west
European cities including Bremen, Antwerp, etc. So, I am wondering
whether the GOLDFARB family's route via Latvia (600 miles >from Kivertsy
to Libau) was normal for people leaving northwestern Ukraine in that
period, or does it reflect the possibility that the GOLDFARB family
may have moved to Vilna for a time before moving on to Latvia and the US?

Any suggestions to help explain their travels will be much appreciated.

German translation requested (ViewMate) #germany

jberlowitz <jberlowitz331@...>
 

Dear SIGgers,
I would appreciate your skills in deciphering and translating portions
of the image I've just posted on ViewMate:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/responselist.asp?key=54569

I would like to know what the words are before the name (Walter Frank
Hugo Ernst LIEFMANN) and what it says after the name of the Kibbutz
(Givat Brenner).
Do you think that the date on the document is the date of the
beginning of his residency at Givat Brenner? This is important because
I believe that this person volunteered in the Spanish Civil War
(against Franco) - in Spain since Oct 1936 in Tankbrigade. Stalinists
accused him of some underhanded deals and supposedly imprisoned him.

Will appreciate - and acklowledge - all efforts.
