1/27/2013 7:24 PM The initial letter is similar to Jan in line 22, Josef in line 27 and Juliana in line 18

Could be the Hebrew name Yonah, spelled out in English, close to what it sounds like.
1/28/2013 6:02 AM The first name is Junach, his last permanent residence is Russia, Burtin-something, it has a line through the end. His wife Anna is still there, it looks like Butreisenner, but I would look at the beginning of the place name on Jewishgen to find out what is likely.

The place name may be clearer on the original.
1/29/2013 12:03 AM Hello Loren,

Line #25
Wolpiansky Junach, 18 years, tailor, Hebrew. Father's name Sel????Wolpiansky. Destination New York, NY. There is a date of 12-7-41 with what appears to be a document number 2?837213. This might be an application for citizenship or actual citizenship number and date.

The name Junach was probably the name by which he was known in his hometown. The name of the town of origin is not legible to me, however it seems to start with "Butrim.....", and at that time it was in the country of Russia.

Hope that this gives you some information with which to work....Jo
