new info on Jacob M. Splan

Posted: 10 Jul 2001 6:44PM GMT
Surnames: Splan, Spolanski
I found 3 names in volume one of Migration from the Russian Empire that I believe are my grandfather and his 2 brothers. The last name is Spolanski. One brother was Peisch, age 20, a laborer; another brother was Meilsch, age 18, a laborer, and my grandfather was Abraham, age 16, a laborer. They may have lied about their ages. They were from Russia, but it does not give the province they were from. They were on the ship, Italy from Liverpool and Queenstown to New York. They arrived in New York July 10, 1882. On the 1920 census for Chicago, my grandfather stated he was naturalized in 1895. I found him in the Cincinatti, Ohio directory for 1890-91 listed as Jacob M. Splan, a printer, which was his trade. He married Ernestine Fischer in Dec. 1891 in Chicago. I am hoping to find the ship's manifest and his naturalization papers to get more info. I know his 2 brothers went back to Russia, but I don't know when. I am hoping to find out more about the Spolanski name and any relatives that might be alive in the Ukraine.
