Re: KOWAL in SSDI
Did your ancestors come thru Ellis Island?www.ellisislandrecords.orgIf yes, can you provide the surname/name as it was transcribed?Was your ancestor naturalized citizen?His petition should have a much better spelling.
Found a KOZAK arr. thru EI from Choteschow, Russia.Close it spelling of a town.I did not pursue it further.
http://ssdi.rootsweb.comhttp://ssdi.rootsweb.comJoseph KOWAL born 20 April, 1888 died Jan. 1970.Did you request his SS-5Form?It would have parents names and most likely a little better spelling of a town, unless that is the spelling from his SS-5Form.
