Have been seeking information on my great grandparents, Samuel and
Jennie (Goldstein) Kaminsky. I have found them in the 1910 census in
Philadelphia, which says they were born in Russia, approximately 1873
and arrived in US 1890 ...
So far, no ships records or immigration info have turned them up.
It is very possible that your KAMINSKY family came one of the least expensive
ways - traveling via England to Canada and then by train to the U.S. The St.
Albans crossing lists start in 1895, so an arrival in 1890 would not have been
recorded. I too have an ancestor (William FINBERG/Velvul SHAPIRO) supposedly
arriving in Philadelphia who has not been located on any passenger list.
