Help translating town name on German manifest #Translations

jake6621@...
 

I need help reading the name of a town on a ship manifest out of Hamburg, 1887.  My g'grandparents are listed on this manifest as David Goldman and family.  Their previous home is listed as what appears to me to be Lubo, Russland.  I can't find a Lubo, Russia or Lubo, anything else. Does anybody read something else in this entry? Much appreciate your help!

The attachment is not in high enough resolution to study what your Lubo looks like to me, but what comes to mind is perhaps Libau in Lativa.

Hello Diane, I found the document on Ancestry, which has a higher resolution:
it quite definitely says "Lubo" and "Russland" - Russia – but: the clerks wrote what they heard, it could (for example) also be Lubow or similar.
In the following column ist says "Händler" = merchant, "Frau" = wife, "Kind" = child
The names in the list are written as follows: David; Taube (or Teube), Freide, Etel, Meier, Jankel

Regards from Germany, Corinna

David Goldman and family continued on to Philadelphia, arriving from Glasgow  on the Hibernian on 28 July 1887.  That manifest gives Poland as the place from whence they. came. This narrows your search somewhat, but still may not provide a definitive answer.

Seems quite likely that it is Libau (present day Liepaja), as others have suggested.  It was a major emigration port on the Baltic from where many Jews left the Russian Empire to all places.

By any chance could it be Lublin, in Poland (not Russia, as it might have then been under Russian rule)
