4/20/2016 3:04 PM UPDATE 23-Apr-2016: I went back and looked at how the person who was filling out the manifest wrote other names. I'm fairly well convinced as to the "Slo" and "erno," but I'm beginning to think that what at first looked like "sv" is actually a "w", so "Slowerno". I might be looking at the Polish version of a place name, with the w representing a v-sound? The port of departure was Libau.

4/20/2016 3:04 PM UPDATE 24-Apr-2016: I think we've nailed this one. It's most like Khabno (Yiddish Chabna, Polish Chabne) in the Radomysl' district of the Kiev gubernia. The name was changed to Kaganovich in 1934 and then Polesskoye in 1957.

Many thanks to everyone who responded, esp. Linda and Bruce. :-)

4/20/2016 2:59 PM I am seeking help identifying possible dates, location, subject matter, etc. of attached Litvak ancestors in South Africa.

My grandmother, Rose LEVIN (1885 - 1928), emigrated from Rovno, Lithuania and we believe she was born in the shtetl Rietavas to Josel LEVIN and Hinda GROSSMAN. We believe Hinda’s mother was named Hya Mira. Rose had four siblings, Philip LEVIN (1875 - 1957), Devorah LEVIN (1890 - 1961), Bertha LEVIN (1895 - 1955) and Fannie LEVIN (1900 - 1990). They immigrated to South Africa in the late 1800’s or very early 1900’s. By 1906 Rose and Fannie had immigrated to New York. The other three children remained in South Africa.

Philip LEVIN was a butcher in Fauresmith, South Africa and married Pauline SIMMER (1894 - 1978). Devorah (Dora) LEVIN married Harris (Harold) BRICK (1893-1942) and lived in Pretoria, South Africa. Bertha married Max JAFFE (1883 - 1958) and lived in Pretoria, Bloemfontein, and Johannesburg, South Africa.
