Genners,

Thanks to the advice >from recent posters (Rachelle Berliner & Maria Torres)
I decided to likewise think "out of the box" with regard to my elusive ggf,
Pinchas Mendelstein. First I tried "Mendel Pincus" with no success, then I
opted for something even more radical, "Mendel Shteen". I entered my data
"first name starts with M", "last name sounds like Shteen" using Steve
Morse's Jewish search page. I came up with 29 males arriving between
1900-1905. When I checked the manifest of Mendel Shtein, I discovered that
he was male, married, Russian, Hebrew, and a baker. The stated age didn't
fit, but I think the baker identification is pretty conclusive along with
the other corroborating data.

Could someone check the manifest and advise me as to the town of last
residence and his ultimate destination? London is listed on the passenger
record, but I made out "Bendzin" on the manifest. Notice that the next
passenger, Israel Rogenblat, was also listed as a baker, heading for the
same destination, and indicated London as his last residence.

Please reply to me privately. Thanks.
