Immigration from Blumenthal / Maslok

Blumenthal Passenger Records via Ellis Island, researched and compiled by Jody McKim. The entries were located at the Ellis Island site using various spellings for Blumenthal.  This is not intended to be a comprehensive list of Blumenthal passengers. 

This list was compiled to assist you in locating your people at the Ellis Island website. Since many names were spelled incorrectly, it can be difficult to locate a record. Sometimes you have to enter a name exactly as it is recorded to get a hit. The results are from searching by variant spellings for Blumenthal and by each alpha letter for a surname, as well as by ship.
