Purowsky/Purowska (not sure of spelling) – My grandfather, Wladyslaw, left Libau Russia on the ship SS Birma and arrived in New York on 4/25/1911. He listed, what I believe, is a relative by the Sophia Purowska (sp?). He also had listed as coming from Hokolowo (again, not sure of spelling), Minsk gov. He lists birthplace as Russia but ancestry as Polish. His birth was in 1886.
