JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Manifest Residence and sex change? - BOGATIN/BEGATIN #general


These are the same people.

My father went >from Hamburg to England aboard the Marylebone and thence to
New York via Liverpool in 1913. I had a complete list of all the passengers
on his ship >from Hamburg. I traced the subsequent paths of all of the US
bound passengers. I found that the passengers listed close together on the
Hamburg list were also listed close together on their US bound ships.

My information was submitted to the Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild,
where you can see it. Google ISTG and search that site for Marylebone

In your case there were 39 passengers aboard the German Empire, 35 were
bound for NY.

On the same manifest page on the Adriatic, Jan 9, 1892, along with the
BEGATIN family, I found 15 of them. Passengers #3,5,6-17 and 19.

Their final destination is listed as New York via Liverpool.

On January 9, 1892 a family arrived in NYC aboard the Adriatic >from Liverpool.
They were Moses BEGATIN (33) with his three children, Meier (male age 9),
Schume(d?) (Female age 7) and Hild (Female age 4). They are listed as being

This looks very much like the same family except for the residence and sex
change. I was unable to find any other people with similar names arriving on
the East coast >from 1891-1900 using Ancestry, Ellis Island or Steve Morse.
