I recently got through to the Ellis Island records database and possibly
found a relative's record of their arrival on a ship. If this is the
correct person this is the closest bit of info I've found in the past several
years since beginning my research.
My question is the nationality was listed as Austrian and where this person
was >from was Galicia, however no town in Galicia was listed. The arrival year
was in 1902. Aside >from going back through all the Shetl links for Austria,
Poland and the Ukraine is there a better way to research this. Also the ship
was sold to an Italian firm a couple of years later and sold for scrap .
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
