Re: Name/Resource Help KARBOWNICZUK

Bringing a message from Pennsylvania's board to this board for me to follow up.
Dear Chari,

Based on Walter's clever finds, I searched Ellis Island via Steve Morse's gold form and found a promising person for your Mary.

Indexed at Ellis Island as Mary (although Marya on the manifest) Karbowinczek arrived on the SS George Washington on December 24, 1912 and was going to her sister in Scranton, Pa. There are markings indicating applying for naturalization in 1940 and her father was listed as Hryc in Krajna by Dobromil, Galicia.

Then I looked for last names starting Karb from towns starting Kra via the gold form and found a Stefan KARBOWNICZUK family also going to Scranton in 1912.

But the very best was from a typed 1921 manifest for Anna Karbowoniczek going to her brother in law Stive (sic) Markowith Taniskort 535 Taylor, Pa!!!!! She was coming from her mother Eva in Kraja Poland.

I haven't provided all details from the manifest so you'll want to check them out yourself.

arriving NY Ellis Island:
Karbowinczek, Mary Krajna, Galicia 20 1892 1912
Karbowniczuk, Iwan Krajna, Austria 2 1909 1911
Karbowniczuk, Kata Krajna, Austria 26 1885 1911
Karbowniczuk, Stefan Krajna, Austria 34 1877 1911
Karbowoniczek, Anna Krajna Poland 20 1901 1921
Karlowniczek, Stefan Krajna, Galicia 34 1876 1910
Dobromil’ populated place 49°34' N 22°47' E E M U G Ukraine 348.2 miles W of Kyyiv 50°26' N 30°31' E

to translit your ancestral surname into Cyrillic

May I suggest you post your query on Ukraine's board.
