You can get this passenger list on microfilm if you
found it online. Both NARA & LDS have films with the New
York passenger lists.

Ships are on the reels in order of date of arrival, so all
you need to do is find the film number that has your
arrival date on it. Then order it in to a nearby Family
History Centre, or request a lookup from NARA.

When you get the film, scroll through to find your date
if your ship isn't there, be sure to check more thoroughly
on the film - the lists aren't always exactly in
chronological order.

For a complete list of film numbers for ships (and
passenger lists) going to New York after 1820, see

Or you could do it an easier way, and search the Online
Ellis Island database! It covers 1921. In fact, I took a
quick look (using the search engine) and found what appears
to be your Michla and family

Name /Residence /Arrived /Age
1 Dinnerstein,Leibe Osmialne, Poland 1921 9
2 Dinnerstein,Michla Osmialne, Poland 1921 40
3 Dinnerstein,Morris 1921 27
4 Dinnerstein,Rochla Osmialne, Poland 1921 12

You can view the manifest online for more details. I took a quick look (but you should look for yourself) and there are only the 2 children, Rochla and Leibe - the family is going to Michla's husband, Wolf, address given as 133/35 Grinnel St, New Bedford, Mass. There's a lot of physical description (height etc) given and more so have a look for yourself.
