I want to thank a wonderful researcher who helped me "for fun."
I recently wrote that I had hit the wall on my family LINK from Blonie, Poland and began an email correspondence which gave me the original names of my PGM's entire family. It had been GLINKOWITZ.
By going back from the naturalization records in Illinois, this individual found their original name, and I was able to view the original ship manifest.
Their original names match their Hebrew names which I photographed last year on their gravestones at Waldheim cemetary in Chicago.
Thank you so much for this amazing gift of my family heritage.
