    Thanks Curt. Unfortunately the only Murin listed from Hungary came in the 1890 s. From: CurtB Sent: Wednesday, September 30, 2009 12:46 PM To:

      Mary Ellen,
      & Michael

      Castle Garden has its own web site with immigration manifests and it is free. just google "castle garden" and you'll find it. He may not have entered through castle garden. The other ports of entry, such as Baltimore, are only available through Ancestry.com.

      > I am new to the group. My name is Mary Ellen and I am researching my husband's family-- Murin without much luck. Most are gone now, and the rest don't know anymore than I do. My Husband's grandfather was named Peter Murin; he was born around 1860-61 (there's a lot of conflicting information). He came to this country probably between 1880 and 1885 and settled in Bayonne, NJ, where he worked in an oil refinery. Sometime after 1910 he moved to Linden, NJ, where he died in 1923. We would like to know when he came to US and from where, and what port he left from. I assume he entered via NY, but I don't know. I hope someone can help us.
