Re: Help with Brick Wall -- tracing Isaac Greenblat #poland #russia

It would certainly help if you could locate the immigration manifest.  Your relative may have arrived at a port other than NYC, such as Philadelphia or Boston.  You can also check European records, such as Hamburg passenger manifests.

I agree with Jill about looking for possible spelling variations.  Also consider transcription errors:  just yesterday I found a record for a Rosenblatt whose surname was mistakenly transcribed as "Rosenblabb."  You could try doing wild card searches, too.
