You can do this with EI if you go through stephenmorse web page
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/EIDB/ellis.html . I searched for AUGUST*
in the first name box and limited years and ports of departure. You need to
be patient though!

Subject: [Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Names Milke and Drews from Januszew near Ilow

While poking around at Ancestry.com yesterday, (it's free at my FHC) looking

for a name in the Baltimore Passenger lists 1892-1948, I found something 

I had ordered a search only for "Otto" with a 1907 arrival.

I found an Emilie Drews age 16 arriving July 4 1907 - left behind her father

Johann Drews in Januszew, near Ilow (a bit SE of Gostynin).  Traveling with 
her were a niece  (Kunegunde age 12) and 2 nephews (Otto age 8 and Heinrich 
age 5) also called Drews.
When I looked at the actual manifest the surname "Milke" was written in a 
different hand for the three children.  Whoever transcribed this for the 
Ancestry Index did not clue in to the Milke name.. These kids say Johann 
Drews as their Great uncle and Emilie Drews as their Aunt.

Hope this helps anyone looking for the Milke children.
