Re: Hapsburg Empire immigration/Hungary #hungary


I would like to learn more about Jews who immigrated to the US via Panama.  My grandfather-in-law immigrated to the US in the late. 19th Century.  He left no information about his family or location in what is now Hungary.  It was part of the Hapsburg Empire before WW I.  He immigrated at 17 years old because family lore said he did not want to go into the Kaiser's army.   He was in Los Angeles soon after his immigration and then San Francisco, where he married and lived until his death in the early 20th Century    Where can I find ship passenger lists/manifsts from Panama?  HIS NAME WAS IGNATZ KLEIN.  He changed his surname to KLINE soon after he immigrated.  Please help.  Donna Kline
