Thank you for your reply!

No I have not, I will get in touch with them as soon as possible. I only have basic things like a marriage certificate and naturalization card (http://tinyurl.com/aneke4o)


Line six does look interesting! I also found a record (http://tinyurl.com/anqx378) that I believe could be him as well, but I will need further evidence to verify the link.

Name: Andrej Matzukawiz
Ethnicity: Russia, Polish
Last Place of Residence: Szewanis, Russia
Date of Arrival: Mar 27, 1912
Age at Arrival: 19y

The age, name, and the fact that he's Polish all match pretty well. The Russia part is news to me but who knows? Also, I can't make out the name of his destination on the manifest, but neither he nor the man in line 6 are going to Chicago, where he ended up.

As for Josephine; It looks like Jozefa Kmiecik is a very possible match. She was headed to Chicago in 1913 and Josephine married Henry in Chicago in 1917. Will still need more evidence.

The thing I dont understand is, if the matches above are Henry, why did he list Poland as his place of origin if he was born in Russia?
