Russian town on 1898 passenger manifest - your opinion needed #general


Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

Stiche Schapiro, age 20, arrived at Ellis Island
on Nov. 25, 1898 aboard the S.S. Spaarndam.

I'd appreciate hearing >from anyone who can identify
her last residence, column 9 on the passenger manifest.
It's indexed as "Denoslin," looks to me like "Denoshin,"
and may be something else. Other members of this Schapiro
family reportedly came >from Kiev and Ekaterinoslav.

Thanks.

I see the town Deneshi, on the river Teterev, 33 km. SW to Zhitomir.
I would take it!
