JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen OSTROFSKY Glasgow? --> NYC #general

Myrna Goodman

Hi Genners,

I hope someone can help me find a way to trace my grandparents' original place
of embarkation to Glasgow. David and Lena OSTROFSKY left for NYC >from Glasgow
on the Columbia in June 1906, landed on June 6 and were detained (my grandmother
was very pregnant with my aunt, who was born in NYC about a week after they
arrived). They were released on June 8th,1906.

On my grandfather's naturalization document, his last place of residence is
given as Fastov. The family believes they were >from Odessa. Is it possible the
clerk misunderstood Glasgow for Fastov?

Is there a database that lists embarkation sites?

Thanking you in advance for any insights you may be able to share.
