The Mormon Church Family History library microfilmed the Hamburg
embarkation manifests and the index to those manifests. Actually, they
are quite difficult to use. If your ancestor came to the US after 1897,
and especially after 1906, the US arrival manifests have equal, if not
more, information. The embarkation manifests >from Hamburg are in
German.

US arrival manifests are on microfilm through the early 1930s at the
Mormon library, as well as the NY port indexes and indexes for some
other ports. The indexes and manifests are also available through the
National Archives.

I don't know much about the Rotterdam information. A giant index exists
in Rotterdam, and a few libraries around the world have it. It is very
expensive, so it is not widely held.

I'm not sure where you are in your research background - new to the
list or new to research. So, rather than bore the whole group, if you
need further guidance, feel free to contact me directly.

Dear friends,

Beeing new in the list. I am a little mixed up with the information
about the "embarkation manifests". May I request clarification:

1.- What is definitely the procedure to get hold of the Embarkation
Manifests >from Hamburg and/or >from any other european port that jewish
emigration form Slovakia used to travel to the USA?Which where these
other Ports?

2.- Since what year do exist such documents and in what lenguages?

3.- Beeeing these documents so important for any geneological
research, I am interested to get hold of as many as possible. Could
those of you who already have in their hands Ship Manifests be so kind
and mail copies to me> If there is any fee involved, please, let me
know:

In response to:
"The mention of a different list for embarking >from Hamburg and for
entry
into the U.S. is a new one on me. I am under the
impression that the passenger manifest was created at the port of
embarkation
and were the *same* ones that were used when people entered the
U.S. Can
someone please clarify this point please?"

Dear Carol, I have a copy of both manifests. One leaving Hamburg
and the
other entering New York Harbor. They are definitely two different
lists made
out by different people.
This is true for the manifests I have checked in the 1880's.
Perhaps later
things changed. Wayne
