What would be the best approach to determining where a specific person
entered the US? What documents (death certificate, etc.) would be of
the most asistance. It seemed that my Great Grandfather spelled his
name, both first and last, no less than 7 different ways. I have had
no success using Ellis Island records using various spellings, and
what I believe is his departure town to no avail, and will use
[a commercial site - name removed by the moderator] at the local lib. on
Friday to search Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia, etc.
This failing, what documents would be most helpful, if any?
