Thank you for your reply! I have checked out the Ellis Island site, these are the hits I got for "Voivod":

Maria Voivod Residence:Sellsnbert Arrived:1905 Age:31
Gergoly Voivod Residence:Sel...bach Arrived:1905 Age:25
Juon Voivod Residence:Dulofalva, Hungary Arrived:1914 Age:40

None of the names or places are familiar to me. And there was no listing of anything close to a Louis Voivod, even in alternate spellings. Maybe he changed his name??

What makes it hard is that I DON'T have a name of a town. In the SSDI, all I get for birth places are "Romania" or "Other country". And yes, those listed are both my grandfather, and great-grandfather.

Do you know of anyway I could find the name of a town??
Thanks again for the name listings, I will look into those.
Thanks so much for your help!

Autumn
