Re: Who was Cousin Jossel A in Philadelphia? #usa


It is Aronowsky / Aronovsky
The "h" in the line below extends high enough to make the  first "o" in the name above appear to have a  descender, making it look like a "g".

My maternal grandmother arrived at Ellis Island on December 6, 1907 on the ship Graf Waldersee. The manifest states that she was going to a cousin in Philadelphia, Jossel A? I have researched Arg...wsky in various combinations of the unknown and questionable written letters with no success. Attached is a copy of the original manifest page (see line 29), and the best attempt to make the name larger.  I have been unable to discover any possible similar names in my family tree documentation in all of my 40+ years of research. I am hoping that there are members of this discussion group who would have suggestions on how to proceed. Thank you!
