I suggest you try searching for first names only, within your date range.
Fanny/Fannie would be Vogel or Fogel in German.
That name would be fairly uncommon so will give you fewer results than
George.
You could also try Lena and Lina.
If you find a likely match, then you can check to see who they were
travelling with.
I found some relations called Pezaro by using just the forename of their
son, Hyman.
I found them under the name Pizzard.
I would never have guessed that spelling and soundex for Pezaro didn't find
it.

I am stumped on this one and have been doing this for 30 years. Even with
the additions of 60 million names on a major online database, I still
can't find the arrival of the following. I have tried all the logical
variations on the HOFFMAN surname
