Where is Oszowe in Vilna gubernia? #general
I need help in figuring where Oszowe is in Vilna Gubernia.
It is clearly marked as such on a 1912 ship manifest.
I have searched on JewishGen to no avail: message archives
and towns of Vilna gubernia. Any ideas???

Osowo (Pol), Asava as a "church village"--a town big enough to have a
church. I do not know if this is your town, but the sound correspondence
is pretty good. The only problem is -sz- for a 'sh' sound, but 's' and
'sh' could be confused by Litvak yiddish speakers.
