My grandfather was born 29 Feb 1880.He came to the US in 1889.Became a US citizen in 1899. And after he married Grandmother who was from Georgia, he went to Vermont in 1914, worked for the railroad for one year, then opened a fruit stand store.I know from my father that Starr is not his original name.I believe it was Njaim which means "Little Star".
These are the only facts I have on my grandfather.And I got those from the 1920 census.
Oh, the newspaper always said that he came from Beirut.But 1889 is 3 years before Ellis Island opened.
My Question:How do I begin to try and find his naturalization records and his arrival records here?
