2 questions about symbols on manifests #general

Marian
 

In 1903 my maternal great-aunt, her husband and 3 children arrived at Ellis
Island. In looking over the passenger manifest I noticed the numbers "6501"
written directly to the left of her husband's name. Would anyone know the
significance of these numbers?

On the 1900 passenger manifest for my paternal great-uncle, the capital
letters "S" and what appears to be a "C" (i.e. "SC") are written directly
to the left of his name. Any ideas about this one?

All suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Re: Genealogy and Your Descendants #general

Stephen Mednick <smednick@...>
 

With regards to the theme of helping our descendents to know something of
their family, in the upcoming Australian Census next week, the Australian
Bureau of Statistics is including on the census form a box which can be
ticked to have one's census data microfilmed and preserved in a time
capsule for a 100 years. The idea being that in 100 years time our
descendents will be able to get an idea of what our life is like today.

Given the problems I've had in finding out about my family over the past
100 years I for one will certainly be ticking this box for the benefit of
my future descendents.

Recently,I've been noticing that an increasing number of people, who have
contacted me regarding genealogy, have been focusing on trying to obtain
information on their families for the benefit of their descendants.
< SNIP >

So, the lesson in all this is to talk to your family, enroll them as
members of your genealogy research team, teach them to help you with bits
and pieces as they are able,and most of all,encourage them to learn about
their Jewish heritage through genealogy. It is not all dry records
retrieval by any means!!!

Re: Family names #galicia

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

If we all had family names since Exodus or before, and there were 10 lost
tribes, that would leave 2 tribes. Add a few priests who would be Cohanim,
and you get surnames you could count on the fingers of one hand-not the
plethora you see today.

Wilk - Ciechanow, Poland... #general

Aron Y.B. Ben-Zev <aronbenzev@...>
 

Firstly, thanx to the many people who responded about the AKT's and 3 who
responded about Wilk or Ciechanow.

I have a few questions. I have through the marriage record (>from London) of
my great grandfather, the names of his 2 brothers and father. I have
matched that up with the JRI records and now have 3 birthdates with AKT
records, and some of the details of my grandfather and some of his
siblings, though nowhere near complete.

This is what I have:
Izrajel Szimon Wilk b.876, akt.39
Abram Ajzyk Wilk b.1883, akt.67 - this is my great grandfather (m. Sarah
Goldstein in London in 1906)
Moszjek Josjek Wilk b.1888, akt.1

I know that their father's Hebrew name was Yisroel Tzvi HaKohen Wilk, and
that the whole family was/is Kohanim.

I however have no information of the birth/death/marriage records of their
parents. I also know through a Howard Petrook of Canada, that my great
grandfather was on the same boat to England as the Petrooks, because they
made the match, between his mother (Esther Petrook nee Wilks) and his
father.

If anybody could help me with anything through these records I would
appreciate it.

Note to the NG: Please respond to me directly at aronbenzev@bezeqint.net as
it would have little to do with the newsgroup.

All the best,

Re: Burial societies #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

Most generalities will have exceptions, so chances are that some would do
one thing and some another. However, I have a cousin who immigrated about
1900 and died only a couple years later. He is buried in a plot belonging
to a burial society of a town which isn't even near where he came from. How
he ended up there, I don't know, but it doesn't seem likely he had an 'old
country' connection to the town. Maybe neighbors in NY?

Re: Pre-1890 Immigrants #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

New York City Immigration lists are indexed up to 1836 (I believe). Then
there is a large gap which is picked up by the Ellis Island Database. The
passenger lists exist, but they are hard to search unless you have very
specific and accurate information (I haven't found most of my families in
spite of 'knowing' when the came-one >from the Baden Emigration List, others
from family history).
However, since your family lived in Boston, perhaps they immigrated through
Boston-or Philadelphia or some place else. Most other ports have indices.

Also, there are books-Germans to America and such which might help,
depending on the year and the origin of your families.

There is also an Early American SIG in Jewishgen which might interest you.

Re: Commitment for insanity #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

This is something that might vary >from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, but a
friend of mine found the following in Buffalo, NY:

1. The census includes the people. The US federal census would include
institutionalized people in any jurisdiction-I cannot say but would guess
that state censuses would also.

2. The people definitely do have death certificates-in Buffalo they seem
to be separate >from the general population-but they are available for
genealogy. Also, medical records (at least some) are available.

As to annulment and burial, I would defer those questions, but it seems to
me that the only burial prohibition is for suicide.

R. Tsvi Hersch LIPSCHUTZ descendants #rabbinic

Steven L Herman <cq@...>
 

Shalom >from Japan.

Despite some written family histories and many hours delving into
"The Unbroken Chain" I've run into a wall and looking for some
suggestions to link a particular chain.

My pgm's grandfather was Hyman (Chaim) POCHOCHOVSKY (various
spellings), b. 1864 probably in or near Brest. The family name had
also been DANZIGER. Chaim was apparently the great-grandson on his
father's side of R. Tsevi Hirsch LIPSCHUTZ DANZIGER, brother of the
famed Tiferet Yisrael author, R. Israel LIPSCHUTZ (1782-1860).
However "The Unbroken Chain" shows no brother for R. Israel,
although he had a cousin Zvi Hirsch who was father of Jacob Koppel
(whose descendents seem very well documented).

Oral-to-written records show that R. Tsevi Hirsch LIPSCHUTZ
DANZIGER had several sons, Izel, Schimon and Baruch. Schimon and
Baruch's descendents as POCHOCHOVSKYS (US, Israel, S. Africa) are
very well documented but Hyman/Chaim is not in there.

I've tried to dig deep in the Poland JRI records with no success.
Any ideas or corrections among our esteemed group?
