You know, your request for all the last-name-with-an-L-Lucian's is so
obviously useful, that I'm a bit embarrased I didn't do it as a first
However, here they be:
Lachecki,Lucian Warschau, Russia 1913 17
Lada,Lucian Sokolow, Russia 1912 18
Lakowicz,Lucian Sanun, Russia 1913 9
Lancewicz,Lucian Augustowj 1907 0
Leibofsky,Lucian Mojamde, Russia 1907 21
Lenda,Lucian Ciechanow, Russia 1905 18
Leschizewski,Lucian Bukowa, Russia 1913 21
Lewandowska,Lucian 1893 7
Lewandowski,Lucian Brooklyn, New York, New York 1909 1
Libweiczik,Lucian Girewok, Russia 1907 28
Lischetzki,Lucian Warschau, Russia 1914 21
Litkewicz,Lucian 1896 35
Loskewsky,Lucian Oletz, Russia 1907 30
Luprundvay,Lucian Jerdyka, Russia 1912 29
Luschewski,Lucian Wola, Russia 1907 19
Lutzikoski,Lucian Lonczin, Russia 1912 26
The number after the date is the age of that particular Lucian at the
time of his arrival at Ellis Island.
The only other possibility that looks plausible to me vis-a-vis your
grandfather would be Lucian Leschizewski. He arrived in 1913, was 21
at the time, and came from Bukowa, Russia. The last name looks like
one that could have become "Leskowitz" with a bit of Americanization.
The manifest image says that this Lucian was to stay with a cousin in
New York. The first name is hard to make out and looks almost like
"Madrid", but the surname is almost certainly Lewandowsky. If this is
a name in your family, then I'd say "Bingo"! If not...then I'd tend
to think the Lucian I mentioned earlier is your man.
By the way, I did the searching for these Lucian's not directly at the
Ellis Island database, but through a very useful interface that you
can see here:
This search page was created by JewsihGen.org, but it also contains
records of non-Jewish passengers as well, and is very handy for
searching the Ellis Island database.
For instance, I set up a search as follows:
First Name is exactly [ Lucian ]
Last Name starts with [ L ]
and then clicked on the "Search (new format)" button, to get the list
of Lucian's that I gave you above.
For each name, you can then click for additional information,
including the image of the original manifest.
I trust this information gets you a few steps closer to finding out
about your grandfather. However, please don't rate this answer until
you have everything you need. If you would like any additional
information, just post a Request for Clarification to let me know how
I can assist you further, and I'm at your service.
All the best,
P.S. PLEASE...let me know what you think of the list of
Lucian's...I've grown quite curious myself.

Thanks for the note...and you're quite right, there wasn't a single
Lucian Lewinsky in the bunch!
In addition to ancestry.com which you are already aware of, the other
major genealogy resource on the web is the FamilySearch site hosted by
the Mormons at:
Despite the Mormon affiliation, the site is a terrific resource for
families even without any links to the Church of the Latter-day
Click on the "Search for Ancestors" link if you want to have a look
around, but I did not see anything there pertinent to your family
As for other ports of entry, I have not heard of any specific
resources about Boston, but if they exist, I imagine they are already
subsumed in the ancestry.com records, as they are fairly comprehensive
in this respect (by the way, I checked ancestry.com as well for your
great-grandfather, but again, nothing of note turned up).
Hope that's everything, but if there's something else I can do for
you, just give me a holler. Good luck with the rest of your search.
