Finding Passengers from South America to NYC on Steve Morse's website #general

Ellen & Sal Barbieri <elsal@...>
 

On www.stevemorse.org Ellis Island Gold Form:

I recently found an Italian who was no where to be found entering NY. Since
I know many went back & forth to South America, I entered last residence Rio
de Janiero & ethnicity Italian & found him.

I did a sampling of last res: Rio de Janiero & ethnicity Russian - 47
passengers.
ex. # 19 on index GUERHMAN, Benzion. All 4 passengers with him listed race:
Hebrew, gives names & addresses of Jews left in Rio & persons going to.

from sampling of last res: Buenos Aires & ethnicity Lithuanian - 68
passengers
Passenger RIKERTIENE, Zelma on index listed race: Hebrew with 16 others on
page listed race: Hebrew.
last res: Buenos Aires & ethnicity Russian - 3,240 passengers

While looking for the Italian, I noticed the following ethnicities:
Portugese, Hungarian, German, Austrian, Holland, Barbados, Syria, Turkey,
Roumania, France, Canada, Greece, Sweden, England, Bulgaria, Lithuania,
Bavaria, Spain, Armenia. I found a fairly large number of transposed first &
surnames, so scanning the index is better than looking up individual names.
Also, lots of misspelled names, so best to scan index or use name
sounds-like.

You can enter other ports: La Plata, Argentina; Sao Paolo, Brazil; Santos,
Brazil
Manifests after 1906 give place of birth in Europe. Think we may be
surprised to find relatives who unbeknownst to us were in South America.

Re: Question regarding Geni family trees #general

Zev Griner <zgriner@...>
 

As with any genealogy/social site, you must remember to manage the
privacy settings. Geni's privacy lets you define what you consider
"family" beyond your immediately family, as well as set what others
can see depending on their relationship with you.

Zev Griner

Because I had seen possible connections to my own family on Geni,I decided
to start a tree myself, putting about 50 of my ancestors' names etc.

Geni Trees #general

Adiva Bloch
 

I use Geni as well and have been quite happy with it until now. I do agree
that the new management procedures are wrong and don't update so much
anymore there for that reason.

IMO, if someone is looking to share a tree, then ancestry.com is a wonderful
place. You can invite whomever you would like to be part of your tree and
can give them one of three management options, one of which being only able
to view, but not make changes. This allows me to share my tree with anyone I
would like, but at my choosing as I can make the tree private and also not
have to worry that changes I do not approve will be made. And now that the
Jewish records are on ancestry as well, it will find possible matches for
you to review that you may have missed on your own.

Jewish foods in turn of the century Ukraine #general

Karen Jo Rippens <krippens@...>
 

Can someone please point me to a resource that would describe what
foods were eaten and how they were prepared in the rural Jewish
villages of Ukraine around 1900?

Thank you very much,
Karen Jo Rippens

MODERATOR NOTE: Also take a look at the Archives. This subject have been

Alfred LEOPOLD Son of Marta nee ZELLER #general

Linda Shefler
 

According to a Page of Testimony he submitted and some vague family
information, Alfred LEOPOLD, son of Unknown LEOPOLD and Marta ZELLER
survived the war. He *might* have spent the war in Norway.

Some other vague bits of information include that he *might* have also been
known as Albrecht, and he *might* have had a brother. His mother was born
in 1882 in Zuentersbach, Hessen, Germany, so just to give you a time
reference, I'm guessing he was born sometime about 1910.

If anyone is aware of this family please get in touch with me privately.

Many thanks.

Ukraine Mogilev #general

Barbara Jepson
 

I am researching the names and places of my fathers family. My
grandfather was Samuel Belinkie, who came >from Molgilev to NY, and later
to Bridgeport CT. My grandmother was Fannie Ginsberg. She and her
sister, Rebecca, married my grandfather and his brother, Henry. They
lived in the same house in Bridgeport.

I am looking for information about their earlier years in this country.

Other names are Gordon and Wexler, who came >from Poland, near Vilna.

Thank you. I can be reached at bjepson@optonline.net.

Skola #general

Helene Kenvin <hekenvin@...>
 

Stuart Unger asked about his grandmother's home town of Skola, Austria.
It may be Skala, which was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire in 1900
(now Ukraine), when his grandmother was born there.

I suggest that he go to the JRI-Poland website (accessible >from the
Jewishgen home page) and check under Skala to see if he can find entries
with his grandmother's maiden name and perhaps even her birth record.

My maternal grandmother was born in Skola Austria

Hello Stuart,

Skola may be identified with Skole. Skole belonged until WW-I to Eastern
Galicia, which belonged then to the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
After WW-I it belonged to the re-independent Poland, and after WW-II
became part of Western Ukraine.
Skole is situated at the following coordinates north of the Carpathian
Mountains: 49 deg 02' N, 23 deg 31' E, south-west of Stryj at the Stanislawow
province.
