Dear Group,

This Viewmate image is the arrival of Moses (aka Mozes Wolf, aka Morris W) GRUBER. His 1908 petition from Portland, Maine shows his birth town as Tluste (Tvoste, Ukraine). Moses record is line 26, the last line on the page.

Can anyone decipher the town name of his last residence? Also, can anyone decipher the name and address of his brother-in-law living in Philadelphia? I tried some obvious combinations of Joseph/Adolf (can not definitively read given name) and SELIECHERMAN as the name in the 1900 census for Philadelphia. I tried googling 141 Bace street and also came up with nothing.

I do know that there was Gruber family in Philadelphia and Moses had a sister or sister-in-law named Gietele. Any suggestions for locating this family would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Moishe Miller
