My ggmother Etta ZOLINSKY and family immigrated to the US in 1901 and went directly
to Boston. The manifest stated her last residence was Suwalk.

In 1902 she gave birth and listed her maiden name as LEFKERR on the child's birth
certificate. In 1906 she gave birth and used LEVENSON as her maiden name. In 1907
one of Etta's daughter's married and on her marriage record her mother's maiden
name is LIVINGSTON. In 1909 Etta gave birth again and used LEFTO as her maiden
name. Documents after 1909 have her maiden name as LIVINGSTON. My ggfather's 1909
Petition for Naturalization says Etta was born in Romsey, Russia. I have not found
any Romsey in Russia or Poland. There is no maiden name on her 1948 death
certificate.

I would like to find records from Russia/Poland but I do not know what could
be her original name. What could be some possibilities? When I input each
maiden name separately into JRI Poland there are possibilities but I'm wondering
if there could be one more likely with all the different names she used.
