What was your GF's surname ?
If he had emigrated to U.S. and arrived on 28 March 1910 he would be
listed on NYC port of entry (Ellis Island) Passenger List, reel 1439
Beginning Dates March 28, 1910.
Your film was Reel 1504 which was Beginning Dates June 21, 1910 ?
Where was your information from - his naturalization papers ?
