Hope this finds everyone healthy and safe this evening !

My maternal grandmother was born somewhere around 1873 - 74 in Pruzani,Russia,which I now believe is Belarus. Not sure the town name is the same ? 
My grandmother's name was Ida Jablonsky, and my question pertains to her name. I'm assuming that Ida was her given name when she arrived in the U.S.,but does anyone know what the Hebrew/ Yiddish name would've been at birth ?
Thanks for any help I can get, and stay well :)

It is Pruzhany, Pruzany district
Grodno Gubernia, once Russia, now Belarus.  You can find information on it 
On jewishgen.org, stevemorse.org and
CPSA (Children of Pruzhany...).

Email me personally, if you need more help.

By coincidence, my paternal grandmother's name was also Ida Yablonsky and she was born in Pruzany. However, she was born about 20 years later than your grandmother - in 1894.  (Her father was Yitzhak Yablonsky and her mother's maiden name was Rosa Selensky).

Not sure if this helps, but when my grandmother Ida came to the US in 1899, her name was listed as Chaie Jablonsky (or maybe Jablausky, it's hard to judge by the manifest).  So, Chaie or Chaya may be a name to look up.

Best of luck with your search,

Arthur Levy

Supporting Arthur Levy's input, one of my ggms was Chaya Sinienski.  After arrival in the US, she anglicized her name to Ida Schiller.
