My Grandfather Chaskel Cymes, Immigrated to the US >from Zawady
(then part of Russia), in 1909 using the surname of his friend,
Abe Munach, and stating that he was going to "his father Louis Munach"
in New York. I never would have found his manifest if I hadn't found
his naturalization papers first which stated he entered the country
using the name Chaskel Munach. Supposedly, he was trying to avoid
conscription into the Russian Army.
Researching: CYMES >from LOMZA, LEIBOWITZ, >from TYKOCIN, SPECTER >from
BOGUSLAR, AND POVLOTSKY >from SHPOLA.
