Hello friends,
I think that I found a distant relative. The immigration record shows
mother, Rachael Rosenbaum and 5 young children immigrated in 1909. The
father, Chaim Rosenbaum immigrated in 1907. The immigration papers show the
city as Shazow, Russia. All came to Chicago, IL.

The JewishGen Community database has similar spellings in 1900 Austria, 1930
Poland, 1950 Soviet Union. How can I tell if this is mine from the probable
incorrect spelling?

These records are new research for me.

Thank you,

Trudy Barch

You obviously cannot tell from "probable incorrect spelling".

You will have to corroborate with/from other data and research.
