This is an extract from Salford Police Aliens Register. The fourth column lists the nationality and birthplace. I cannot work out the birth places for Sheva and Moses Bloomenfeld. Other documents show Bessarabia and sometimes show they came from Akkerman or Izmail. I am sure that the town names were written incorrectly, perhaps phonetically, and hope someone may be able to recogise them.

thanks

Still thinking on the second one.

And the third is a mystery. It is read as "Russian Radisheff". Radishev was a great Russian writer, and I managed to find a village named after him, but it's in Siberia, veeeery far away from Bessarabia and the Pale of Settlement. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radishchev Is it possible? I even don't know when it was named.

There is a town named Rtishchevo in Russia https://www.google.com/maps/place/%D0%A0%D1%82%D0%B8%D1%89%D0%B5%D0%B2%D0%BE,+%D0%A1%D0%B0%D1%80%D0%B0%D1%82%D0%BE%D0%B2%D1%81%D0%BA%D0%B0%D1%8F+%D0%BE%D0%B1%D0%BB.,+%D0%A0%D0%BE%D1%81%D1%81%D0%B8%D1%8F/@52.2610203,42.6659485,8z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x413fba528518da25:0x14e0893e23f7e5d0!8m2!3d52.2600733!4d43.7814352
