Re: Unable to find names on passenger lists #names


My maternal grandfather's name was Jacob, he went back to Romania so he is on 2 manifests from there to New York, on one from 1913 he is Janez, the other from 1907 he was Janen. Try using just the first initial of his first name and go directly to Ellis Island records. 

I could never find my paternal great grandparent's on any manifest to the East coast from England. Then I tried border crossings and found the whole family arriving in VT through Canada. 

Good luck!
