Hint:   Google is a good friend.  Use it….

Simply searching Google for:   "ports of entry in 1905”   divulges that there were

Five Major Ports of Arrival

   The five major U.S. arrival ports for immigration in the 19th and 20th Centuries were:
   New York, Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New Orleans. New York was by far 
           the most commonly used port. 

Reading further we learn that there were also:
  • Charleston
  • Galveston
  • Key West
  • New Bedford
  • Passamaquoddy
  • Portland (Maine)
  • Providence
  • San Francisco
  • Seattle,

From census records I beieve  that my paternal grandfather, Jacob Bloom (who likely amg;changed his name prior to emigratinig) immigrated from Kovno via South Hampton England) inn 1905. But I don't know the name of the ship and the exact date. 

I suppose the next step is getting records from Ellis Island. I assume this was the only port of entry for immigrants at that time. Of course the 1910 census depended on the accuracy of the interview. O have no living relatives who can help me with this.Thanks for any information or suggestions.
