I have a BEST family, two brothers Abraham and Louis, I have found
them in 1881 census in Swan Street London as Hairdressers, It states
that they were born in Poland. Louis born abt 1857 and Abraham abt
1862. Louis is married to Golda Cohen also born in Poland born abt
1860. Later on I find them listed as Polish Russian subject. How do
I locate them on passenger lists arriving in the UK.
