Alan B. Cohen asked:
My wife recently got a copy of her aunt's. U.S. citizenship papers (1942). They
gave her place of birth as "Zaim Russia" when she arrived in the U.S. in 1909 on
the SS Ryndam from Hamburg Germany. I've tried to find Zaim without luck. Does
anyone have clues or any search suggestions?

Alan...we have a wonderful toolhere on JewishGen...which enables you
to find towns which hadh Jewish inhabitants and institutions
around1900...called the community pages. The best thing is that you
can search towns using various search tools, (exact spelling,
soundex, fuzzy search) in various timeframes (before WWI, between the
wars, after WWII),
and even better, you can search on the yiddish name of the
town...which immigrants often used on manifests.

i queried zaim in russia before WWI, and found these two possibilities:

Deimiai, Lithuania 56 miles NW of Vilnius Deimiai [Lith], Zheim [Yid],

or Deimiai, Lithuania116 miles NW of Vilnius Deimiai [Lith], Ziem [Yid],

i would pursue both of these towns by following the links on their
community page

Isnt JewishGen wonderful !!

Zaim, Russia is known place in province Bessarabia of Russian Empire, and
currently in Republic of Moldova.

This town is very easy to find. Go to Google, Maps and search for Zaim, Moldova.

I had relatives who used to live in Zaim, and that town is several miles from
Causeni (Kaushany) town, where my relatives used to live.

If you interested in more information, please contact me directly.

Thank you,

Yefim,

JewishGen has established Gazetteer, known previously as a ShtetlSeeker.

https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocTown.asp

As the introduction to the JewishGen Gazetteer says:

The JewishGen Gazetteer contains the names of one million localities in 54
countries in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia.
The data is based on the U.S. Board on Geographic Names databases. For each
locality, the search results will display:
The place's name(s), with the native name in bold.
Coordinates - latitude and longitude.
Links to maps.
Country in which the locality is located today.
Distance and direction from reference point.
Link to display all places within a 10 mile radius.

Please use JewishGen Gazetteer.
