2/6/2012 2:51 AM 163 Chrystie Street. Chrystie Street is one block from Forstyth St. on the Lower East Side. My ancestors lived there, it's where the Russians settled.

Looks like the husband, Jankel Stolnitz, arrived in 1904 & was going to a brother-in-law at 163 Chrystie.

Schie (various spellings) is a Yiddish male name. My gf had that name.

The next name is a girl, Esther.

And, then Moische.

Nationality is Russia, just follow the quotation marks up the page.

A soundex search on Jewishgen's town finder comes up with this possiblity (you would have to do more to document this as accurate.)
