Re: Ship Manifests and ports #belarus

I hav found relatives on several ship manifests and routes as follows:
Liverpool-St. Johns NB - 1903;
Hamburg-NYC - 1904;
Libau-NYC - 1909;
Libau-NYC - 1912;
Bremen-NYC - 1912 (2);
Havre - NYC - 1914.

How they got to Liverpool and Havre is not clear to me, but there
obviously were many routes available. Almost all immigrants who
came through Canada are indexed in the St. Albans files available
at the FHC.

Does anyone have experiences with finding ship manifests?

Dear Ava,

If you have your grandfather's naturalization papers, you want to send
for his Petition for Naturalization and the Declaration of Intention,
both of which state the name of the ship he was on and the date he
arrived.

I had that information and I too could not find my grandfather's name
on the manifest until I interviewed a great-uncle who told me that my
grandfather came on forged papers and was not Harry Rabinowitz when he
boarded the ship, but traveling under this uncle's father's name,
Mordechai Savitsky!

I have sent for the photo of my grandfather's ship >from the Mariners
Museum in Newport News, VA and they coldn't be nicer!

Good luck!

1860s Belarus: take stepfather's name? #general

Joyce Weaver <joyweave@...>
 

My great-grandfather passed away when my grandmother was three years
old. Her mother remarried and had three more children. I've always
assumed that my grandmother's maiden name, VILNER/ WILLNER, was that
of her natural father. But now I'm wondering whether this could be
her step-father's name.

Is anyone knowledgeable about naming traditions in Belarus in the
1860s? Would a child retain her birth-father's name? Would a
step-father adopt the child, either formally or informally and give
her his own name?

Re: Soc Sec number #general

Sally Hohensee <hohensees@...>
 

Henri,

You can find Social Security numbers and death information on the Social
Security Death Index at
http://www.ancestry.com/search/rectype/vital/ssdi/main.htm

To get death certificates, you need to write to the state where the death
occurred. Each state has a web site like http://www.state.ny.us/
("ny" is New York, for example; substitute the abbreviation of the state
you need). Information and forms for each state are usually under something
like Department of Public Health, Department of Health, or Vital Records.
A few states have death indexes on their web sites.

Hope this helps!

My husband claims that he is descended >from Litvaks. His family came from
Tilsit, Germany. I have not found this place name in the ALD. I know that in Lithuanian history, borders changed many times, but I am wondering if his family can indeed be considered Litvaks. Can someone please settle our

vital records indexes #general

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

Just thought I would advise people who have trouble
finding death certificates (or any other certificate) in
NYC.

I was at the Muncipal Archives yesterday doing research
for someone on a death certificate and could not find the person
in the index even though I had their date of death >from the
cemetery on Long Island. So I went into the actual certficates
and pulled the microfilm for that month and year. Lo and
behold there was the death certificate right where it should be.

Moral of the story is that if you believe someone died in NYC
don't take any index as being accurate. If I dd not have a date of
death my only other option would have been to search all
the microfilm reels (about 12 for that year - an impossible task).

Hope this helps someone.

The Jewish presence in Savannah goes back to the 1700s, and the
lovely Congregation Mickve Israel is one of the oldest in the US.
Under the leadership of Kay Kole and the Savannah Jewish
Federation, the Jewish community has developed an extensive
archive of local Jewish history. Archivist Valerie Frey sorts and
compiles and creates finding aids. The archives are located at
the Georgia Historical Society, in downtown Savannah, and are
accessible to all researchers.

The Savannah Jewish Archives are actively seeking local documents

logical place to donate your historical documents.
