Stephen Morse's One-Step is Non-Stop #general

I read all the hurrahs about Stephen Morse's website. I first tried the
EIDB. I input my cousin's name, "Michal" and surname. Result: no such
name on the list. I tried the Morse one-step with the same results. I then
insert only the last name, "Luft", in the EIDB. Up came over 200 names.
One of the names intrigued me, "Sinabab", because it had the right shtetl,
Janowa, and age 2. I then searched for the manifest. Lo and behold, the
manifest showed this 2 year old with his mother Freda, brother Harry, and
uncle Mendel, all of whom I am quite familiar with. Looking at the
handwriting, it certainly was spelled "Michal". My question is how did the
EIDB come up with Sinabab. And how did the meticulous Morse crew manage to
overlook this one? Neither website had a Michal Luft (later called Max).
How many others have they skipped over? I have other Lufts whom I have been
unable to locate. There were 4 brothers, including Mendel, and 2 sisters.
Only Freda's husband appears on the list of Lufts
