Manifests / Ship Arrival Lists #general

Debbie Pomerance <dpomeran@...>
 

Hi -

I am having trouble with one of the manifests in the EIDB.
As a cross-check I want to ascertain whether the ship in
question actually arrived in New York >from Antwerp on the
date stated. I have looked around the web and have had
some trouble locating an online source of ship arrivals
in New York by date.

Does such exist?

Thank you

JGFF to explore family names: SUKOENIG, POPPER . . . . #general

MBernet@...
 

Here are two family names that were posted recently

SUKOENIG
POP

Given the travails of language, spelling, pronunciation and
their histories, it's always a good idea to take the names
we find and roll them over a few times

SUKOENIG sounds very much like SUKENIK. Prof Eliezer SUKENIK
(1889-1953) was Israel's premier archaeologist. He acquired
many of the Dead Sea scrolls for Israel and devoted the rest
of his life to their study. His son Yigal, who changed his
name >from SUKENIK to YADIN was the second chief of staff of
the Israel Army, and then became a renowned archaeologists
himself, famous for his excavations at Massadah and for his
decipherment of some of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

POPPER was a Jewish family in Bohemia, prominent since the 17th
century in finance, business, leadership and scholarship. It
is generally held that the name originated >from Frankfurt-am-Main
in Germany. The two "f"s in Frankfurt are rendered with a peh
in Hebrew and Frankfurt was commonly abbreviated Peh"Peh. POPPER
was thus just a shorhand way of saying Frankfurter. I haven't
come across the name POP before (except when my kids were talking
to me, and certainly not on account of my Frankfurt-born pgm) but
I assume it may well have been bestowed on someone whose family
had arrived >from Frankfurt.

The JGFF is a great place to play around with names in this manner.
You can search for a name using the spelling you know, or with
a "Wildcard" (match based upon a prefix --POP would have suggested
a possible connection to POPPER) "Daitch-Mokotoff Soundex" (match
based upon a name's sound --SUKOENIG would lead to SUKENIK.) and
Partial Text (match based upon text matching anywhere within the
surname)

Hello Genners,

Well it seems that my Kessler part of the family (my mother's)
does have the two Darryls problem. My grandfather's name in
Austria was Schaje. His younger brother's name was Schycha.
I don't guarantee spelling accuracy, nor do I know how to
pronounce either. After my grandfather came to America, he
changed his name to Sam. A year later, his brother came, and
also declared himself to be named Sam. >from then on, two brothers
named Sam. :)

Re: people killed under Nazis' euthanasia program #general

Michael McTeer <desrx@...>
 

I was wondering if there was any further information on this
'list'. I did not keep the originial message and the article
site, but as I recall, some 31,000 names representing about 10%
of 300,000 names were 'available.' Apparently part of an
ongoing project.

I contacted the writer of the article who responded they will
not be able to answer until after the New Year. I think I found
a site for the archives, but their 'kontakt' page was in German
which I do not read/speak. The 'English' page is:
http://www.bundesarchiv.de/e_misc.htm

OSCAR family #belarus

James & Carole Early <carjim@...>
 

I am researching the OSCAR family of GRODNO, Russia. Soney (or Samuel)
was born in April of 1866, emigrated >from Hamburg, Germany to NYC in
April of 1887. Then, came to Washington, DC. Parents?

His brothers were Beryl & Myer MILLER. I believe that they changed name
in US.

He married Rachel WALKER (maybe KOVNO, Russia). She was born in 1860.
Do not know when she emigrated & I do not know marriage date. She died
in 1893. He
Married Anne (possibly a sister of Rachel). She died (about 1899)&
Soney m.ed Rebecca (another sister?)

My g-m was Lena OSCAR GERBER, daughter of Soney & Rachel. She married

1860 California census, Nevada County, Grass Valley Township. page. 168. If
someone would be kind enuf to access the census I would be most
appreciative. Would also be interested in knowing whether my
greatgrandfather ABRAHAM BAUM (born 1827 in Augustowa) is listed in the
California census of 1850 (if there is one). He went on the Gold Rush and
remained in California until 1851 when he retuirned to New York. Many
