Have you searched all the passenger manifests arriving other than new York?

Go to and see all the other ports. Also search the Canadian passenger
Manifests and Canadian Border crossings. 

People entered from other ports And be sure to search phonetically and starts with.

Subject: [] My maternal grandmother, Fanny RECHTSCHAFFNER #ukraine

I have been unable to determine when my maternal grandmother, Fanny RECHTSCHAFFNER, came to the US and the town of her birth.  I know her sister came with her parents in 1899 from Strzeliska, which at that time was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire and is in present-day Ukraine.  I have been unable to find any record of her birth or her immigration to the US.  I have searched the Ellis Island records and JRI-Poland.  Any suggestions as to how I might search records from Ukraine?  Is anyone familiar with this town?
