Don't assume the name is listed in the database by the intiial letter M.
It could have been misread by the person doing the entries. I found
Silberstein under the initial L !

How thorough is the Ellis Island data base? Were records lost or
destroyed? I have been unable to locate my great grandfather's manifest
(PINCUS MANDELSTEIN or MENDELSTEIN). Although I don't know definitively
that he arrived at Ellis Island, I've been unable to locate him at any
other port either. According to the 1910 census he arrived in 1902, and
later arrivals were headed for his address in New York City. I've tried
various spellings of his surname, but I've come up empty handed.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
