9/2/2010 2:50 AM Hello David,

Hirsch Belenky appears to be from Molulew. I am guessing that the name of the relative might be Zsirje Belin???/Belinson(??) from Molul Gubernia. Perhaps Gubernia means province, district, or some other jurisdiction. Perhaps someone else may be able to be more exact...Jo

9/2/2010 3:40 AM Hirsch.
The manifest has a second page for this record.
The second page for him shows he comes from the "country" of Mohilew (aka Mogilev, in Belarus)and the town Suchany.
9/3/2010 3:28 AM The name is HIRSCH BELENKY
Age: 17
Sex: M
Single
Occupation: workman
Can read and write
Nationality: Russia
Race: Hebrew
Last residence: Mohilew = Mogilev
Nearest relative:
looks like Jiwik Belinka (probably a different spelling of BELENKY);
Sankow / Saukow = could be SAUCA, which is close to Mogilev
Mohil. Gub. = Mohilev Gubernia = The county of Mogilev
9/3/2010 4:12 PM It appears to me that the nearest relative is Zisyeh Belinson.
7/25/2020 11:18 AM David, there is another Belenkin, Mimmie from Mogilev on line #21.
I have Belenky family from Mogilev riegion.
Shoot me a PM
Alex
