Many of you are familiar with the large migration of South African Jews to
America in the Apartheid years and later, but do not know of a much earlier
migration in the 1920's.

This came to my attention whilst searching the database of the site:
http://www.footnote.com

It is possible to search by "South Africa", but also by the area where the
person lived such as "Southern California" and receive all of the entries
for those born in SA and living in Southern California. This approximates
597 entries which are both Jewish and non-Jewish.

A sample of the names found by doing this type of search are:

Bertha Cantor
Herman Cohen
Samuel Cohen
Arthur Thomas Jacobs
Nathan Levy
Dora Sarah Miller
Sophie Mofsowitz
Abraham Pihl
Eva Seligman
Barney Smokler
Joseph Stern
Abraham Walter

You can search for free on this site, but must take out a subscription to
obtain copies of the documents.

Hope this is of interest.

Dear Genners,
I should appreciate a more accurate translation >from Polish than I can do of

Re: passport requirements for entry to U.S. #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

Passports were simply not required for entry into the US in 1904 and for
some years after that.

I can't say with certainty, but I think they became a requirement only when
Visas were required as part of the revised immigration system implemented
after WWI. That was when inspection pre-departure "inspection" replaced
inspection upon arrival.

Does anyone know what the U.S. requirements were for new immigrants to
hold passports in those days? Would it be normal for a person to be
admitted without a passport, or does his ease of entrance mean that he had
somehow obtained a passport? Would it be likely that he could have
obtained one through a small bribe? (He couldn't have afforded a large
one.)

Trying to get any info re: Chevra Anshei Kupshewnitzer.

My father, Samuel NEWMAN (name may have formerly been NEIMAN), was a

information about him other than the above. Hopefully a connection with
the society may provide some insight.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please respond to my email address.

Seeking RUBIN Family in New York and Pennsylvania #general

Barbara Musikar
 

I am seeking any clues about the family of my great uncle and great aunt
Markus RUBIN and Dina GOLDHIRSCH RUBIN. Markus was born in Darachuv and
later lived in Vishnivichik in Eastern Galicia., now Western Ukraine. He
was a cantor and a presser. Markus emigrated >from Galicia to New York in
1909 and was followed by his wife and eight children by 1913.

His children were Chana Reisel aka Rose born about 1891 who married her
first cousin Isidore HELLER. Rose died very young. I have information on
this branch of the family since both Rose and Isidore were my father's first
cousins.

Sender Aka Louis RUBIN was born about 1894 and may have lived in Carbondale,
PA and later in Philadelphia, PA.

Sossie Aka Sophie RUBIN born about 1896 married Morris WALLACH who owned a
window washing business. They had three children Saul, Phylis and Jerry.

Mechel Aka Meyer RUBIN born about 1897. I have no information about him at
all. He may have changed his first name again.

Judel Aka Julius Meyer RUBIN was born 1901. Julius was involoved in the
dress trimming business and may have married after 1929.

Feige Aka Fannie RUBIN was born about 1902. I have yet to find out the name
of her husband. She was married sometime after 1920.

Sime Aka Sam or Samuel RUBIN was born about 1903. He was married around 1929
to Edith. They had one child named Rhebe (perhaps Reva) in 1930. Sam was a
salesman.

Malkie Aka Mollie RUBIN born 1907. She was married to Herman Aka Hyman
GELMAN IN 1932. Herman was a clothing salesman.

I would like very much to locate descendants of the above mentioned people.
I was hoping that the females would have married men with uncommon names,
but I unfortunately they did not. Most of the above families lived in the
New York metropolitan area especially in Brooklyn.

Database of Jewish burials in Buenos Aires #lithuania

Jrbaston
 

Oscar Friedman asked about how to find out where
a relative who went to Argentina is buried.

Several years ago, AMIA, the Jewish communal
organization in Buenos Aires, announced a searchable
database of Jewish burials -- I believe mainly in the
Buenos Aires area.

It can be found at:

http://www.amia.org.ar/difuntos.asp

I have found it very interesting, and have discovered
members of distant family branches whom I presumed
were murdered in the Shoah, but in fact they had gone to
Argentina in the 20s and 30s.

Best wishes,
