Hi Judy,

It will help to know that Koidanov is today called Dzyarzhynsk, Belarus.

For more info on Dzyarzhynsk, and databases to search:

For more info on Marijampolė, and databases to search:

I suggest using phonetic and/or soundex searches on surnames.  Names get spelled in variant ways in the records.

You can also search databases such as FamilySearch.org or Ancestry.com to trace your family through U.S. census records, naturalization records, passenger manifests, and much more.
 
Good luck in your search,

Sherri Bobish
