Have you ever used Stephen Morse's search engine for the Ellis Island
database? It's at the Jewish genealogy site:
I've had much better luck with it than with the original Ellis Island site.
In a quick search, I was able to find an Anna Duran (36 yrs) who, with her 8
year old son Janos (John), arrived on the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse on
December 07, 1910. They were from Vazcecz, Hungary, and their destination
Good luck with your search!

Subject: Duran Family
I'm new to the group and would really appreciate any help I could get in
researching my family. My great grandfather and great grandmother came over
to the US from Vazec, Slovakia between 1912-1914. Their names were John
Duran and Zuzanna (Chovan) Duran and they settled in Minneapolis, MN. I'm
trying to locate date and port of entry, I've tried many different web sites
but seem to have hit a brick wall. I would greatly appreciate any advice
anyone could give me.
Thanks so much,
