The ellisisland.org website has the ships manifest and it needs a magnifying glass to read his destination address inthe USA. His townof originis listed and along with his name and age that is about the most information you can glean. =Peter=

Livio, is that written in Polish or German. I thought German since the port was Breman.

Lilbees, the manifest is in English and Justin is requesting to translate it. Since it refers to a Polish person I think it must be translated in Polish...

My best guess for last residence and place of birth:
Town of Podgorzany, district of Tremblowa
http://www.loc.gov/rr/european/egwinv/index.html
Check under the "P" listings.
