My maternal grandmother, Fanny RECHTSCHAFFNER #ukraine

I have been unable to determine when my maternal grandmother, Fanny RECHTSCHAFFNER, came to the US and the town of her birth.  I know her sister came with her parents in 1899 from Strzeliska, which at that time was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire and is in present-day Ukraine.  I have been unable to find any record of her birth or her immigration to the US.  I have searched the Ellis Island records and JRI-Poland.  Any suggestions as to how I might search records from Ukraine?  Is anyone familiar with this town?

Judy,
Have you searched all the passenger manifests arriving other than new York?

Go to stevemorse.org and see all the other ports. Also search the Canadian passenger
Manifests and Canadian Border crossings. 

People entered from other ports And be sure to search phonetically and starts with.

Judith asked about birth record for her grandmother from  Strzeliska.  
If you look at the listing of records on JRI Poland it shows the years for which records exist.  There are missing years from these records.  So it is likely that the birth took place during those periods.  You might look in neighboring towns as sometimes the family moved or a birth took place in the mother's hometown.

As you do not know if your grandmother came to the US, try other US records such as census and death records.

Could Rechtschaffner not be a phonetic variant or mistake in writing for Rechtschaffen.  I have a Fanny Rechtschaffen, daughter of Pinchas Rechtschaffen (1864-1928) and Malka Sara Klein (1866-1939).  No more information.

On  the other hand my great-grandmother Sara Rechtschaffen, was married to my great-grandfather Shlomo Apsel and must have died before 1910, because there are some granddaughters who are named after her and born after 1910.  A lot of Apsels and their family were also living near the Sztrelisk area.  After Sara Apsel (born Rechtschaffen) passed away, her husband moved to Olchowiec, a little hamlet just miles away of Bobrka (which much be 25-30 away from Sztrelisk) to one of his sons.  Which information do you have on your Rechtschaffner who might be Rechtschaffen.

I don’t mind you to answer me privately

Judy,

 

Could the name Rechtschaffner not be a phonetic variant or mistake for the name Rechtschaffen. I have a Fanny Rechtschaffen.  Could you get back to me privately.
