13379 Interpretation

8/23/2009 My Great great Grandfather Philip is the 5th one up from the bottom in this image of the ship manifest from Hamburg on the way to the US. My Grandfather thought his Grandfather (Philip) came from Lvov. But it very well could have been the maternal side. It looks as if it says Benatura or Benatuna but I can't find any town like this. I figure I'll let you experts take a crack at this. View the post with its 1 response
