Subject: [Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Help with town name
> I have found a mention of my ggrandmother in an obituary. Her maiden name
was Margaretha Allmer and the obit said she was born in Ballis, Russia. I
haven't found this town so far. I believe her father's name was Michael, but
am not positive. Margaretha was born 8 Oct 1865. Her family immigrated
prior to 1893, as she married my ggrandfather in 1893 in Scotland, Bon
Homme, South Dakota.
> Any suggestions on what this town is? One name that came up on jewish-gen
was Balei, but this appears to be in a part of Russia near China.
Did you check all 37 countries at the Jewish-gen site? There are some
similar names in other countries besides Russia, some in the Ukraine.
