No. There is no comprehensive on-line list of the tens of
millions of passenger arrivals at Ellis Island.

The ships' passenger manifests for the port of New York,
1820-1957, are available on microfilm at the U.S. National
Archives in Washington, several of its regional archives,
other selected libraries, and via any of the over 3,000
LDS Family History Centers.

Does anyone know how the "Zw" would in ZWAWY would be pronounced in Polish?

Any suggestions on a possible "English" equivalent to look for in case the
family emigrated?

Thanks,

JMG-Miami@...
Pronunciation:

Zwawy [Zhvah vee] - male,
Zwawa [Zhvah vah] - female

In Polish "Z" in zwawy reads with the an accent above the letter "z", which
reads as "zh" in the name "Zhukov "

Zwawy translates to English as brisk(y) or lively.

After perusing several Polish death records, I feel that a

Is there already such a list? If not, is their anyone out

entries ...probably less than 100 to 150.

Dear Gabi,
Thank you for doing the lookup. I'm sorry it took so long to get back to
you;
I am truly grateful. Regarding the Aschner surname...I am seeking Victor and
Sigmund Aschner of Vienna, possibly others whoose names I do not Know; I'd be
indebted to you for any information you might find on them and the surname.
Most sincerely, Linda Rakoff, Newton, MA
Gabi and Linda,
Came across an Aschner while doing my research-she is probabaly not
related to me but I'm passing on this info and the source-keep or delete
as you wish.

Data Source: NYC birth record October 1908 cert#55922
female infant named Rosa born on 23 Oct 1908 to Regina (maiden name
Aschner) age 35 est dob 1873 and Jonas Grosshandler age 53 est dob 1855.
Address in 1908 was 225 E. 121 St. both parents were born in Hungary. In
addition to Rosa, Regina and Jonas had 8 other children,
Benjamin,Mollie,Henry,Mary,Pauline,Sadie,Sam and Fannie (not necessarily
in that order). If you want to find more about Regina, I have an address
from the 1922 NYC directory:
850 So Blvd.(probably "Southern" Blvd.) apt. 2H (it's in Bronx Co.) in
case you want to check for them on the census. I met one of their
descendants (Iwas checking out the Grosshandler side) but the one I spoke
to didn't know much about the family's European roots (i.e. "I think they
were >from Budapest").
Good luck,
Mindy
