Re: Good and Bad news #records
I did a search at The Ellis Island Database:
for surname starting with letter A, and town starting with Polon, and came up with a possible surname for you. Even if Zissel never came to The U.S., other family members with that surname may have.
You may want to look at these manifests to see who they were bound for in The U.S., and the 1922 manifest will also tell you who they left behind.
Good luck in your search,
RATOWSKY / CHAIMSON (Ariogala, Lith.); LEFFENFELD / FINK / KALTER (Daliowa & Jasliska, Pol.)
BOJDA / BLEIWEISS (Tarnow & Tarnobrzeg, Pol.); WALTZMAN / WALZMAN (Ustrzyki Dolne, Pol.)
LEVY (Tyrawa Woloska, Pol.); SOLON / SOLAN / SOKOLSKY (Grodek, Bialystok, Pol.)
BOBISH / BLUMENKRANZ / APPEL / WEINER / ROSENBERG (Vysoko-Litovsk, Brest, Biala Podlaska)
