Re: Passenger List -- SS Vaderland - July 11, 1905 #hungary

NORMAN FUHRER
 

Just spent several hours on Steven Morse website, Ellis Island website and
Google, trying to find our relative,
Joseph FUHRER.

His Petition for Naturalization shows him as Joseph (possibly Yosef, but not
indicated on the petition) FUHRER. He was born in Natafalva, Hungary on
June 19, 1885.
He arrived in NYC on July 11, 2005 (>from Antwerp) aboard the SS Vaderland
(his petition indicates Fatherland). His lived in Ungvar prior to his
departure. He was a shoemaker.

We have tried every possible spelling, but have come up empty. His name
appeared on the 1920 Illinois Census was FU?Ber. Does anyone have any
suggestion.

Thank you.

Vase symbolism on Jewishgen and in Bohemia, Moravia and Venice - correction #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

What ever came over me? I was so interested in the article on the Jewish
cemetery in Venice and my chance to revisit the fantastic tombstones in Bohemia
and Moravia with their Levite pitchers and jugs that it was not till I had sent
off my message to the Discussion Group that I noticed that Gad had sent in a
draped urn: http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=8444

Now that is completely different - see urn and vase:

http://www.cooktownlife.com/cemetery/symbols.htm

Thanks to the readers who also pointed this out. Nevertheless, I do hope you
enjoyed the Venice Jewish cemetery article where, if you read it carefully you
will also see a discussion on the draped urn symbolism in the paragraph
starting: "In the 19th century, and thus in the new cemetery (which is still in
use), the sepulchers start to resemble those of a Christian cemetery...."

Sorry to all!

Breast Cancer-1 gene mutation #france

Shelly Crane
 

Dear Genners,

I am searching for anyone who has the 185delAG BRCA-1 mutation in their
family. It appears that men and women with this very specific mutation
probably inherited it >from a single ancestor who may even date back before the
Common Era.

One of the perks of having specific genetic mutations in the family is that
it helps with genealogy research, which is why I am posting this!

Please reply privately and only if you have this very specific mutation in
your family. If you do, then we may very likely be related, even if we don't
share an obvious surname in common!

Thank you,

Historical database of Czech businesses #austria-czech

I've stumbled upon a site in Czech that appears to
have a historical database on businesses in the Czech
Republic. A brewery owned by my g-g-g-grandmother's
brother is there, for example. Might someone who
understands Czech have a look at the homepage for this
site and explain what it is all about?
