Ellis Island Arrival Record - Shostak - 1907

The preferred method of searching for Jewish last names in Ancestry is to
check off the "exact, sounds like, similar and soundex" option boxes OR
setting the search filter slider bar to the far left, "broad" setting.
Using findmypast.com, always check the "name variant" box. This resulted
in finding the family indexed as both SCHUSTAK and SCHOSTAK arriving NY on
the Campania January 20, 1907.
