1904 & 1911 Hamburg passenger lists #general

Maria Raquel Stiles-Hand
 

Hello,

I have been searching for the passenger lists of
Jewish emigrants that arrived in Brazil through the
Port of Hamburg in 1904 and 1911. They traveled on a
Brazilian ship and arrived at the Porto do Rio Grande.
My grandmother, Reike Brunstein, was >from Orhei,
Moldova and then settled in Quatro Irmaos in Rio
Grande do Sul, Brazil. My grandfather, Avrum
Schneider, came >from southern Ukraine and then settled
in Filipson/Philiptson. If anyone has any suggestions
or advice, please let me know. I feel like I am at a
dead end, but I am not giving up. Thank you for your
help.

Sincerely,
Maria Raquel Stiles-Hand

Patience and persistence #general

Joseph Fibel <jfibel@...>
 

Many posters to this group have expressed upset at not being able to get
information in some particular situation immediately.

I have just added a 100 person branch to the tree of one of my wife's
father's families that I have been working on for 8 years. A non-responsive
cousin finally referred me to a cousin of his (not a cousin of ours) who did
know other members of the family. In three weeks, we completed the tree for
this branch and are distributing copies to all interested newly found
cousins.

Again, be persistent and patient and you will
find your relatives.

Re: immigration to Montreal, Canada #general

Alan Greenberg
 

Irene, If they came directly to Canada, they the possible cities are
Quebec City and Montreal, Halifax and Saint John. If you know they
arrived in the winter, it could not be Montreal or Quebec City
(before the days of ice breakers, they were closed in the winter).
See http://www.collectionscanada.ca/genealogy/022-908.003-e.html for
additional details.

However, note that many immigrants arrived at New York or other US
ports and then proceeded to Canada via rail.

Montreal, Canada

Does anyone know to which port immigrants, whose final destination
was meant to be Montreal, would usually sail in the early part of
the twentieth century?

Re: Vienna - Royal courts #austria-czech

Hi Celia and all,

In my case, the name of the signer was Helene, Helena
or Elena KESTLER. I've looked during the late 1800s,
but found nothing. Now I'm going back to the late
1700s, since Andreas KESTLER (another relative) was
bestowed the "von" title in 1764 (Andreas Kestler was
the personal physician of Maria Theresia). Maybe the
singer also belongs to that era??????

I have not found a name like this in Latvia but I

FALIKOV family from Kilia, Vilkovo, Tarutino in Bessarabia #romania

ALEX VOLKOV <volkoff@...>
 

Hi All Genners!

I am looking to FALIKOV family roots in late 19th century or deeper, in
three villages (little towns) in Bessarabia, namely Vilkovo, Kilia, Tarutino.

FALIKOV last name can be spelled FALICOV, FALICOFF, FALIKOF, FALIKOW or
even possibly FALIKS. In Kilia in particular, it has double last name,
FALICOV-BANCHIK

Places also have different spellings and alternative names, Tarutino has
Yiddish name Anchokrak, Vilkovo was called Valcov in older times, and
Kilia is also called Chelia

In Tarutino, another family I am looking for is GENESSIN. Izhok Genessin,
(possibly son of Shaya Genessin) was a father of a large family in Tarutino,
related by several ties with FALIKOVs in Vilkovo

Other related last names, persons who lived there: BOTOSHANSKY, FRIEDMAN,
FIEDELMAN

Thanks in advance for any tip or information!
