Try doing a soundex search at Ancestry or FamilySearch or the Ellis Island Database at

You will get hits with alternative spellings, i.e. Lakubovic, Lakabovicz, Lucobovitz, and others.

A soundex search of
JAKOBOVIC on Ancestry shows people with that name that changed it to HILLMAN during naturalization.
