Could be Bassie (my grandmother’s sister's name, in Galicia). Or how about Rivka aka Rebecca (which could have been changed to Beckie but possibly also to Bessie). Or Blume (my grandmother’s name in Latvia, which she changed to Beckie). Or any other Yiddish name with a B (Brocha, Breine, Bayla ) -  Bessie seems to have been a common choice in America.

I too may have found possible relatives, 3rd great grandparents.  I wonder what the Jewish name of someone who called herself Bessie in the USA around 1900 would have had in Russia.  Can anyone suggest the most possible.  Basyah or Beila seem likely.

Just wanted to thank you for adding these records. I was able to find my paternal grandmother's family in Svisloch, Bobruisk in the 1874 Revision Lists to add to the 1858 Lists - which cleared up a major question of identity and gave me some new great uncles and great aunts!
I have made a (very modest) donation to the Bobruisk Uyezd: Jewish Records fund to provide more tangible thanks.
Shabbat Shalom all.
