that can sometimes be found in the various documents by checking 'next of kin'

try looking at ship's records for your relly's next of kin.

naturalization documents may show place of birth too.

Let me give you my story in the short form and as an example: I'm the "Polish"-- really Ashkenazic Jewish-- descendant of an unknown Chernetski, whose name became Antoni Jan Julianowicz Czarniecki, then Anthony John Czarnecki, Sr.. When I first began researching, I got an e-mail that read in part that a town called Lisko Orlisko, where Great-Granddad Anthony "Tony" Czarnecki, Sr. was born, was Lipsko in between Radom and Puławy. Lisko Orlisko actually turned out to be Lipsk nad Biebrzą, and all we still know so far is that the Chernetskis owned a family farm in Lipsk nad Biebrzą, Augustów, Suwałki, Poland Russia. We have no szul (shul) or parish information-- not that we will without LDS microfilm records, anyway; since once we became Anusim, we were sat sziva for.

I should've said "where Great-Granddad['s] dad and granddad were born." Great-Granddad was born in Cumań, Kiwercowski, Wołyń.
