The Origin Of The Surname JANNER #general

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

For a long time is was curious to know what is the
origin of the surname JANNER which the respect Lord
Greville bears.
Recently I had a chance to meet with him and to share
with him my curiousity. Much to my surprise he told
me, and gave me the permission to disclose it,that until
recently he himself was unaware of it.All he knew was
that his grandfather came to the UK >from Latvia in the
1880s.
Only recently,through his work to register mass graves
in Latvia, he was taken to a tiny place in Latvia
called Vitum where a local contact person found some
records pertaining to his grandfather.
It seems that for travel purposes his grandfsther
needed a surname. Since he was a resident of Vitum he
became VITUMIANER(like Lublianer, Venetianer). By the
time he arrived to the UK it was shortened to IANER
and thed evolved to JANNER.

Re: A Mystery! Surname change? #general

Most of us will never find out the *why* many of our immigrant ancestors
changed their names here in the U.S. However, it should be understood that
many had surnames for only one or less than one generation, had no
particular foundness for those surnames and had little use for them. They lived
in a different world >from ours where identification and records are so important.

Re: Manifests InfoFiles #general

If you look at the same ship's manifest, in the Detained Passenger
section, page 526 line 48 you will see more information on your grandfather.
He was released >from the hospital on 8/15/03 at 11AM, had a hearing that
same day. He was excluded >from entering the US and appealed. There was
a re-hearing on 8/21 with the same result. He was deported on 9/11.

Since he was detained at Ellis Island for a month, DI can't mean
Deported Immediately, nor did he leave the hospital on his own.
My guess is that DI might mean Deportation Inquiry. I looked up a few
other people on the passenger list with DI against their name in the
Detained Passenger Section and they too were deported.

On the ship manifest where my grandfather appears, the initials and words
"SI" and "LPC" and "In Hospt" appear above his name. His name on the
manifest is Nicolo Mattaleani and he was listed as a stowaway. From
reading this web site, I learned what each of them meant. But also above
his name are the initials "DI". Do you have any idea what DI would have
stood for in 1903?

My grandfather does not appear on *any* of the usual records that citizens
and immigrants alike created in the early 1900s. I'm thinking that he
may have left the hospital on his own (illegally) and perhaps and that DI
stands for Deport Immediately or Detain Indefinitely or something like
that.

Thanks for any clarification you can provide for what "DI" might have
stood for.

Following up on the "wild idea" that "Asone" is really "As one"...see who is
above them on the list---maybe they were traveling with another family and
got listed under that family name.
That would be a more convincing explanation were it not for the fact
that there are families listed in the JRI databases bearing the
unusual name ASONE. If only out of curiosity, it would be interesting
to know what is the origin of this surname.

I have to agree with all the other possibilities people have listed, too.
I've had several of those happen in my genealogical history.

Good luck!

Computer program for family photos #general

Howard Nightingale
 

I am beginning to collect family photos to be stored on a computer disk. I
need a recommendation of a robust programme which will allow me to scan the
pictures in and keep separate files for different families and family
members. My hope is to share these with the rest of the family some day.
