you could at least directly link to that manifest.. i don't feel like going through that website looking for your peeps.
Sorry but I'm new at this. It looks like maksym has made some progress.
Anyway, I did a town name search for lisia Gora and 1 match for a passenger with a surname ending in iewicz was the surname Ksiazkiewicz
Thank you so much. The surname Ksiazkiewicz is something to go on. We believe we have family in the USA - and boy are they in for a surprise - bus loads of us in Europe. I found the ship's manifest purely by chance. I was helping someone else. Stefan seems to have disappeared into the woodwork. My family believed he had gone to Chicago but so far I've not found anything there.
When you click on previous page(which is page 1 of the manifest) it's still difficult to read, but if you scroll down, there is a line where the person had written Ill Chicago, and Ill is written the same for Stefan, so the state is for sure Illinois. To me it looks like:
I've now found that a Stephen Rybinski born in 1883 died in Maryland - Social security Number given. Could be him! How does one go about checking that! Sorry but being on the other side of the Poland such things are a mystery here. Ideas are welcomed.
