Thanks for the reminder that extractions and indexes must always be suspect.
I had trouble locating any of my Polish lines on the Ellis Island site. I
finally tried a search on one that I already had the ship's manifest for.
The mother, Ewa Pucz, could not be found. I tried searching by surname only,
and printed out all of the Pucz passengers. There she was, correct ship,
listed as Ma Pucz. [She sounds like a gangster!] One of her sons, Edo Pucz,
was listed incorrectly as well. If you have an uncommon name and are having
trouble locating your passengers, I do recommend trying by surname only and
then sorting out your passengers from there.
It hasn't worked yet on any of my other lines, but now that I have located my
Pucz family, I feel that it is only a matter of time before I manage to come
up with the "correct" incorrect [surname] spellings for the rest!

This just came in on another list. We need to know this, as once again (or
should I say "as always"?), data in compiled extractions cannot be relied
upon as being 100% accurate.
