My father was known to me as Peter Jacob. On his papers he wrote his name as Petros Akopa. On the Ship Manifest he lists that he is going to see his brother, J Jacoob,in Chicago and that a family name where he lived is Bauaija Akopa who lives in Urmia, Persia.

I don't know what J stands for (although, when I type it in on Ellis Island site, up comes Jacob Jacoob, and that is what the last Ship Manifest is for to show some info on this J Jacoob) and so I'm just guessing.

Bauaija Akopa is his relative living in Urmia, Persia. I don't know who this would be, . . maybe his Father or sister, or grandmother, or aunt. The name ends in an "a" so that would be for a woman, I'm guessing.

In any case, the Ellis Island transcript doesn't even give this info, but I have attached what appears as a Transcript. I've given you the Manifest , page 1 and 2 with enlargements of the sections I mention above. So I'm not sure where to go from here. I didn't even know that he had a brother! I really can't seem to post this Transcript list. Sorry.
