Trawo, Wilno Gubernia #general


Laurie Sosna
 

Hello,

On a passenger manifest for Paie Lewin & 3 daughters, arriving at
Ellis Island in 1911, the previous residence and birthplace listed is
Trawo, Wilno Gub. The writing is legible, and is repeated for all four
passengers.

I haven't had any luck using the JewishGen tools, does anyone
recognize this place?

Thank you,
Laurie Sosna

Town is Traby, pron. [troh nbyh] currently located in Belarus., used to be in
Oshmiany uyezd, Vilna Guberniya.

In Poland during the interwar period.

Please pay attention to Yiddish town identification. Teth-Resh-Alef-Beth-Jod
is read as "Trawi"
