I have a potential relative arriving in NY in 1896 >from Kinischin, Russia.

Anyone know the current name and location? It is not listed in WOWW.

Thanks,

The town of Knyszyn is now in Poland at coordinates 5319, 2255, 26 miles
NW of Bialystok. Before WW1, Knyszyn was part of Grodno Gubernia in the
Russian Pale of Settlement.

Knyszyn is included in the geographic scope of BialyGen, the Bialystok
Region Jewish Genealogy Group. For more information, see the BialyGen
website at http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/homepage.htm and

Most likely this is now Chisinau (Kishinev) Moldova.

Check out tha All Romanian data base
<http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/#Romania> for the
names that you are looking for >from Kishinev. There
are now over 50,000 records that have been
transliterated >from the records that were filmed by
the Family History Library. (More records will be added shortly.)

If you are able to help transliterate Russian or
Hebrew/Yiddish script and would like to help with this
project please contact me at robertw252@aol.com.
