If he came in 1899 via NY, and you can't find the exact date of arrival
or ship name via his naturalization papers, you can get the soundex for
NY arrivals (1897-1947) and find when he came. Ship manifests at that
time tell you lots of interesting things, so it's worth trying to find!
Info on doing this, as well as emailing the NARA branch for his nat
papers are on my HInts site, url below.
