This is part of a passenger manifest from 1913. I need to know the surname of Sarah P..... indicated by the arrow.
The person arriving was Rivka Silberstein, a widow from Makow, her age given as 60, she was actually 79. Her married name was Fischer, I believe, and this Sarah was her mother. Although the writing looks clear, this name is not.

3/24/2013 11:35 PM Based on the handwriting on the rest of the sample, I can't read this as anything other than PRIMOST.
3/25/2013 2:21 AM Surname appears to be mother. Sarah PRIMOSTER
3/25/2013 3:34 AM yes - it is Primost...but this line doesn´t belong to Rivkas line. Hers is: cousin.x y. Your text belongs to
the next passenger on this list: Golde Primost...

3/25/2013 4:08 AM I agree with the previous responses. The person from Makow, gubernia Warschaw [Warsaw] has a cousin there Feiwel Blum.
3/25/2013 10:57 AM I get Priessast or Prienast. It would be helpful if the entire passenger record were shown. That way we would know if it is Feivel Blum or Sarah Prienast (or Priessast). If you re-submit, do it after the Seders.
