4/17/2008 This looks like Max Jentz or possibly Yentz

One needs to look at more handwriting to make sure of the last letter which could also be a y.

The other possibility is that the letter *n* is a *u* and again you have to look at all the permutations in the censuses to see if you can find an equivalent name {which may also be mistrancribed}!
4/17/2008 The destination address in NYC is 332 Cherry Street (Lower Eastside) indeed. I believe the surname of the brother-in-law might be Szulc? But without seeing a full manifest it is difficult to discern the pattern of the letters written in cursive manuscript. Sorry about this one.
