I'm having trouble reading a name in a ship manifest. Any help would beI read it as Naime. I think you can assume that this is what Yiddish did to
the Hebrew name "Naomi".
A possible additional surprise about your grandfather is that, when (and
assuming he was) called to the Torah, your "Wolf" was called "Ze'ev".
