Most directories have a street list I could find nothing like Clureawess--- There is an Albert Lukasiewicz at 18 Holt street and an A Lukazawicz at 3301 Brereton in 1907 A few years later there are a John and Stanislaw Lukasiewicz at 142 41st street.

> Hello List,
> My grandfather, Walter Lukas (Vladas Lukas^evic^ius in Lithuanian or Wladislaw Lukashewitz in Polish) arrived in Allegheny City in July, 1907 after he got off the boat from Lithuania. (He arrived in the port of Philadelphia on the S.S. Friesland on June 30, 1907.) On the ship's manifest it says he was traveling to join his cousin, A. Lukasewitz at 112 Clureawess St. in Allegheny, Pennsylvania. (Note: Others have read the street name as "Clureamew" or "Clure Awess." It is not very clear on the manifest.)
> I know that Allegheny City was absorbed by the city of Pittsburgh in late 1907. So I have searched the old maps in the Hopkins Map Collection at the following web site: http://digital.library.pitt.edu/maps/01v01ind.html
> But so far I have not found Clureawess Street or anything that looks like it. McClure Avenue is the closest match so far, but it seems like there should be a better one.
> Does anyone know of any on-line street directories or telephone books or other maps that might have a listing of Allegheny City streets in 1907?
