This is the name of the "nearest relative or friend in country whence alien came" for my great-grandmother, Mina (Weissefeld) Blumenfeld, 1909. Help in deciphering it would be greatly appreciated.

5/3/2021 9:54 AM Very difficult to interpret, however it looks like Mar?? Lisman or Disman. First letter of last name: L, or possibly a D because the writing is so “stretched” out. If you can, compare this writing to other writing samples by the same person.

Hope this helps. Good Luck.

First name looks like Marcu
Surname Lisman or Disman?
Town Galatz. Today known as Galaţi, Romania.

Brother in law, Marcu [not Marcus] ?licman, Galatz (Romania).
Note: The first letter of the family name is incomplete. Note that Glicman is a common Jewish name in Romania, but the letter is not a G. I suppose it was a distorted spelling of a name ending in "licman." [This part is very clear].

You might try the spelling Dicman. It might be a Romanian surname (with that spelling). If you try a JewishGen name search, you will find a researcher looking for "Dicman" surname in Iasi, Romania.
