      I think Vlaimir's post points up a very BIG research tool for all:? Look outside the box, try the UN-obvious, try to attack the problem from a different direction.? This is especially true once you've found all the "easy" stuff.? My sister and I continue to look for different ways to approach the same problem in our research.? Also, it helps to go back from time to time through the things you've already found.? Sometimes something that didn't seem helpful a year or two ago, now jumps off the page as an obvious clue or missing link for future research.

      P.S.? It's also helpful, as in my case, to have someone else with whom to bounce ideas around.? And that's why THIS forum is so helpful to everyone, all the other ears to hear your stories and think of different ways to interpret data or find missing records.? Thanks to all who contribute!

      Michael, I thought you will be curious how I found it.
      1.If you write Subocza, then you must have seen it written on EI. So I look
      for who came from Subocza.
      2. Three Majerniks. Well, well. Only three indicates uniquely wrong
      spelling. Otherwise there would have been more others too.
      3. I look at from where other Majerniks came. There was one place Lubocz.
      Bingo. Looking again at the manifest confirmed the place.
      Best,
      Vladimir

      Rick,
      In my Slovak Road Atlas I located Zamutov, just west of Vranov nad Toplou.
      But could not find Subocza.
      Because of the spelling Subocza I concluded it was a Hungarian spelling. I
      went to the 1910 map. Zamutov was on it, spelled Zamuto in Hungarian. I
      could not see a Subocza.

      Hello

      Where is Subocza? Is It is near Zamutov? My Great GRandmother, Maria
      Majernik appears on Ellis Island reords but I am not sure it is the correct
      Maria. My Maria was born in 1869 as was the Maria in Ellis Island record.
      I think my ancestor came around 1907 but i am not sure (as did the Ellis
      Island Maria). My Great Grandfather was born I Zamutov (possibly Subocza
      are in close proximity).

      Thanks,

      Rick
