I know, it's very odd. I can even scan and show you the forms if you wanted to check it over yourself but I see no place other than Minsk listed. Her first husband, Vasiliy, was from Klinok, as I've mentioned. Her second husband, Grigory, was from Babruysk in Minsk.

Actually, I made an error in saying Vasiliy was from Klinok. He was actually from Klinokskaya, the county in which the town of Klinok is contained. I don't know if he was from Klinok. His younger brother was from Ananichi in Klinokskaya so that may be where he was born. My apologies if this is confusing you. Names have changed since then and Igumen is now called Cherven.

For ship manifests, I have not found him. He sent his first wife and child first through Ellis Island and the one record that is a possibility of being him is a passenger list coming in from Texas. He came over with a German man. Maybe you can make out the name of his closest relative because I can't. His name is listed under a Martin Kaiser. If you are on you can see the link here-
