Re: need help finding Morris, Sam and Jonas LISS passenger arrival records #belarus #russia

One reason may be the indexer misread the entry. Try to find others on the same pa
via Ancestry and you may also find your relative. Each service seems to use
their own indexers.

My grandparents were miss indexed in the 1930 US census, but my 3 year
old father was listed with the correct name but at a strangers home.

He was recorded as grandson of the HOF.

Using Googleearth I found the address, and saw that Heggaman Ave was
a cross street, I know the family lived there and searched house by
house until I found the entry. The small "u" was indexed as an "a".


When you start to read readin,
how do you know the fellow that
wrote the readin,
wrote the readin right?

Thank you again, I also found the record for Sam Liss, who I had not been able to find on Ancestry.

Do you know why some passenger info might be found on familysearch but not Ancestry? I now know that i've been relying too much on Ancestry alone.
