You'll need to narrow down your location search. At this historical time 
frame, they could be from the areas we now consider Germany or from the 
areas which were then Prussia or Pommerania but are now located in 
Poland. If you are having trouble finding their ship manifest, then try 
to find that of some related relatives or some clues in the census 
records. Look in several early census records. Do they consider 
themselves Germans from Poland? from Russia or always from Germany? A 
ship manifest of this time usually provides both the name and residence 
of someone left behind or the last town in which they resided; it often 
provides the name, relationship, and address of someone to whom they are 
traveling. All these provide clues to their origin.

Good luck.
