    Hi guys, it has been a while - trying to figure out another puzzle here.

    I have located some documents but they may not all be the same person but there are some strong matches.

    I was wondering if we can figure out the birthplace or where to go from here.

    I posted the documents here:

    The obvious place is Liviv but what is Dyczki? can't find a place near Liviv that matches.

        Thanks Hanna, I guess possible though it seems a little far away from Liviv?

          Hi Luke and Hannia,

          Have you considered Dychky, Rohatynskiy raion, Ivano-Frankivska oblast?

            Thanks Richard, seems very possible. His wife Sofia Ciupka who landed as a single house maid according to the 1930 census in 1913 is very likely the Serafyna Ciupka near the bottom of the passenger list posted.

            I assume the hometown Lubela listed on the manifest to be Lyubelya, L'vivs'ka, Ukraine.

              Hi Luke,

              You are correct. Lubela (also spelled Lubella) is present day Lyubelya, Zhovkivskiy raion, Lvivska oblast. See: First Military Survey (1763-1787) | Mapire - The Historical Map Portal, and Second Military Survey (1806-1869) | Mapire - The Historical Map Portal

              Although I could not find any CIUPKA surnames in the village today, it appears that Serafyna also traveled with Marya HUPALO from the same village; I noted 3 HUPALO living in Lyubelya to this day.
