Sharon. The online translation indicates they were from Smacany Russland. When they arrived in NYC they were only identified as being from Russia. I tried to find Smacany to no avail. Good luck. Don

Here's the link to the American passenger list as well...

Maybe you can submit a name correction ?

Were you able to locate a passenger list for her husband? You could find the name of the location on that one...

This passenger list unfortunately does not have the location as Don said...

I don't believe she indicated the name of the husband and she deleted the original message 8 minutes after your posting. Oh well. Don

Sorry. Meant to copy it to another board. Can I put it back? I think they are Polish. Thanks for your help, Don & ER.

Please NOTE there is not a manifest found anywhere that lists ethnicity? Prior to c. 1900s ONLY Nationality was listed, which simply means citizenship. Later another column would be added to manifests titled "race or people", which is what we call ethnicity today. I don't know why ancestry and Ellis Island insist on using a term NOT found on manifests, it only confuses people.
