I've been trying to find immigration records for some of my ancestors and I'm having particular difficulty with one, my great-great-grandmother. I can't find any records for her, but I know she traveled to the US with her uncle who my grandmother knows only as "Uncle Puntas." (I'm not sure of the spelling, but the name is pronounced PUWN-təs.)
I'm interested in finding out more about "Puntas" - if it could be a nickname for something. The family were Catholics from near Warsaw, Poland.
