Mary Ellen Pollack asked whether a town listed on a manifest as "Reslawa" was
the same as Radzilow. Remembering that the letter "w" was likely to be
pronounced like a "v", a "sounds like" search on the JewishGen Jewish
Communities Database for "Reslav" brings up another possibility, the town of
Roslavl, Russia, 226 miles southwest of Moscow.
