    Do you know where in the US they landed? I found my great-grandparents' manifest page through a search on the Ellis Island Foundation's website. It took a few different name/date searches. They based the name search on the hand-written script in the ship's log, so sometimes they misspell names. For example, an "o" might become an "a."
