Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Re: Philadelphia Bank Immigrant Passage Records Address Interpretation Assistance #ukraine

In this address, G stands for 'gorod' (city). Dom is the Russian word for house, so Wolf Gidizgeim is living in the house owned by someone named Globocki. Na is a preposition and here this means that the house is at the old bazaar (or on a street by that name)

These records often list addresses in Europe with abbreviations. Below
is one example. Would anyone be able and/or willing to inform me what
the abbreviations stand for (or otherwise inform me where I could find
this information). I assume that the "G" stands for Guberniya, but I
am unsure of the others (I assume both "Dom" and "Na" are also
abbreviations).
