My hearty thanks to Barbara Manheim, Jules Levin, Avivah Pinski, Max Polonovski, Judy Floam, and  Dick Plotz, and anyone else I might have missed for sharing their valuable and insightful knowledge about by ggm's name, Dwoire.  She was from Slutsk, Russia.  I only saw this Yiddish spelling of her name on the ship's manifest.  After she got to America she used the name Celia and much later in life occasionally called herself Dora.  These latter names I believe were derived from her given Hebrew names, Shulieh Devorah that are inscribed on her headstone.
