Trying to identify the name of the town where the family of my grandfather last lived. The town starts with an R and ends with an e and is in Ukraine. It might be near Sudilkov, where Ruchel was born, or near Novograd-Volinsk, where her husband Jankel was born. I have also posted on Viewmate the Hamburg departure manifest for cross-referencing the town name. Thank you for your help!

11/30/2012 8:16 AM I believe it is the town of Rishnivka (or Reshnivka). On Google Maps, search for "Velyka Rishnivka" (Velyka means "big" or "great"), and then zoom out a couple times, until you see the town of Sudilkiv on the same map, a little to the north. Rishnivka is about 10 miles south/southeast of Sudilkiv, in Khmelnytska oblast.
