I would like information prior to their arrival in the USA. Siblings, maiden names, parents, grandparents... It's my understanding that many people changed or shortened their names during migration so I'm not sure if I have the correct names. They have listed their nationality as Austria, Polish on the ships manifest at Ellis Island.
