I am trying to find port-of-entry information for my great-grandparents
(Josel and Nechama LIPOWITZ (changed to Joseph and Anna LIPOFF in the US) who

although Josel may have been born in Bialystok or somewhere in the Suwalki area.
I understand Ellis Island entry ended at 1924, which explains why they are
not listed. I've already tried all ports-of-entry as listed on Steve
Morse's web site.
