My last name is Gramitt. After being told that our ancesters came from Germany, my brother did some digging and learned that we came to America from what was then called Pomerania, but today is in Poland. He actually traveled to the area a few years ago and dug up public records. Apparently, before crossing the ocean, the last name was Gramith, but was anglisized to Gramitt.
I recommend you go to the ellis island web site. You can probably find the ship manifesto of your ancesters' voyage. I found that mine came over from a port in Hamburg.
