I know that my uncle's grandfather, Benjamin Weissman came to the US in
1888. I know he was >from Budapest, Hungary. He was naturalized in New York
on October 16, 1894.

My problem. I am unable to find out which ship he came
in on. According to the the National Archives Ship Arrival Form, "the
index to New York passenger arrivals covers the period 1820-1846 and
1897-1943. We regret that we cannot unertake a page by page search of the
lists for the period 1847-96, inclusive."

So, where does that leave me in my research for Benjamin? Any ideas
will be greatly appreciated.
