My grandfather Peter (Piotr) came to America on May 26, 1906 aboard a ship called Caledonia departing from Glasgo, Scotland. According to the ships registry he was from Wilna (Wilno?), but other papers list him as born in Gerianiony, Poland on May 28, 1882. He is listed as Russian - Polish. If any of this is helpful to you I have information on his wife and children and will be happy to share it. If it doesn't help you, perhaps you can help me with Polish Geography. I can't find Gerianiony on any map, and think Wilna is a region, not a city, although I found reference to Vilnius which I think is in Northern Poland and may be another name for Wilno. Any help is appreciated.
