My paternal grandfather arrived at Ellis Island, acc. to Ship Manifest, on 8/15/1907.
His name is listed as Rapczinski, Tadeus--age 20--ethnicity Russia/Polish--place of
residence Zabor, Russia. His brother is listed in same manifest as Rapczynski, Jan--
age 22--ethn. Russia/Polish--place of res. Zabore, Russia. Name used in US was
Rapczynski, Theodore. He was probably born 11/2/1888. I cannot trace my grand-
mother, Anna, either to arrival in US or back to Poland. They were married at St.
Valentine's Church, Bloomfield, NJ, 11/14/1909. Cannot read her name (Polish
clergy?) on marriage register: Niejranowski? Izieyianowski? Niejianowski? My mother
spelled it Iranowska. She was born 4/19/1889 (SS Death Index) or 1890 (Census).
On Tadeusz' WWI draft card (1917-18) country is listed as Russia Lithuania (?)
I want to find out about Zabor (location) & abt. my grandmother's origins/arrival.
