Married Wife with Children traveling to America

+5 votes
So many of you have been helping me with my search for the Weiners.

Well I have tracked down Benjamin's real first name which was Noach Weiner. That is the name he traveled to America with in 1905.

Anyway I am trying to track down his wife's immigration records. She came over in 1907 with the two kids Leon and Lewis.

My question is what name would she have used to travel?

Would Bennie have paid for their passage or someone else? What company would they use to pay for it?

Her name was Miriam Weiner (maiden name Kasner) but I am not sure how that translate to Ukrainian German. I know that Jews used multiple names for different situations and communities back then and that the surnames were different.

Matthew, I cannot provide a definitive answer about names she might have used, but there is a webpage that can be of immense help in finding name equivalents in many different languages that I have often used for situations involving eastern European Jews.  This page is at, which may require you to join in order to use it, but the good news is that their membership is free - you just have to put up with a lot of email from them begging for donations.
