Thanks for your question.
I take it you are asking about the land of Goshen where the Israelites settled when they came down to Egypt in the time of Joseph as recorded in the latest chapters of Genesis. Here is some information from Parson's Bible Atlas:

Goshen (Egypt)

[GOH-shen; “mound of earth”] A region in Egypt where the household of Jacob settled; the land provided rich pastures for the grazing of livestock. Equated with the “district of Rameses” (compare Genesis 47:611), Goshen is identified with the region of the E Nile Delta where the cities of Pithom and Rameses once stood. It continued to be inhabited by the Israelites until the time of the Exodus, and was partly shielded from the plagues that fell on Egypt. Genesis 46:34-47:27Exodus 8:229:26
