Subject: Travel from Galicia or Imperial Russia to Bessarabia

Dear researchers,
 I know based on a passenger manifest that my grandfather emigrated to the United States in 1911 from the village of Lipkany in Bessarabia and in other documents he states his birth place is  Nova Sulitza in Bessarabia.  Half of the town of Nova Sulitzy was in Galicia and half was in Russia.  I was wondering if any one has any information about their families journey from Galicia to Bessarabia or from a part of Tsarist Russia to the specific area of Bessarabia.  The family name I am researching is Wallach.  Thank you for your help.

It's not possible for a town to have been partly in Galicia and partly in Bessarabia, because the two regions didn't share a border.

A possibility to consider is Novoselitsa, Bessarabia -- now Novoselytsya, Ukraine.

It's on the Prut River, which separated Bessarabia and the Austrian crown land of Bukovina, and about 27 miles from Lipkany -- now Lipcani, Moldova.
