A city in Ukraine: Zetoma? #general


Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I have come across a city in Ukraine that I cannot identify. It looks like
Zetoma to me: but where is this? Here is the 1900 passenger list of Jacob
Oberman, my great great uncle, showing this city:

Can anyone help me read this town name?

Dan

P.S. I had expected the passenger list to show that he lived in the area
of Zaslaw, Ukraine:

As to Dan Kazez, the images read "Zetoma" to me. Perhaps Dan's "Zetoma" in
Ukraine is

Zytomyr (MapQuest spelling) or
Jitomir / Shitomir / Zhitomir / Zhytomyr (Bogunskiy Rayon) (according to
ShtetlSeeker),
http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/loctown.htm
82.5 miles W of Kiev and not precisely close to the area of Belarus'
Saslav.
