JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen BRENNER OR BRENER - What other surname could they have sailed under in 1880-1884 #general


Very frustrated. I pride myself in being able to find my people on immigration
lists. (Once found my LEVY family sailing under the name LAPSER into NYC in
1856.) But some of my BRENER and BRENNER relatives have stumped me.

Based on other arrivals I found, they probably came through Baltimore, but I
have checked all possible ports. Their first cities were in Pennsylvania:
Lancaster, Harrisburg and Reading.

Many sailed under the BRENNER/BRENER surname. Would be surprised if they did
not. Nevertheless, I am looking for other possible surnames they may have used.

They were natives of Lithuania. They are:

Solomon (Zalman) BRENNER between 1880-1884 possible with wife Sara.

Nathan (Nochum) BRENNER he stated in Naturalization paper he arrived 15
June 1880, but told census takers 1884, so 1880 to 1884. Probably came alone.

Max (Mordechai) BRENER stated in synagogue bio that he arrived May 1888.
Year confirmed in multiple censuses.
