Re: Other passenger lists: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil #general

Hello Fellow Researchers,
I searched the website that Zev provided and did not turn up someone whom I know
arrived in Rio in 1865. That person is listed in the book discussed below, which
covers persons arriving by ship in Rio de Janeiro only >from the United States
between 1865 and 1890.
To find lists of libraries holding a book that you want,use
http://www.worldcat.org. In this case, search for
movimento-de-passageiros-norte-americanos
Such a search in WorldCat will even yield an English-language guide to using
this Portuguese book and list the libraries where the book is available.
Both books might be available in other libraries as well since not all libraries
participate in WorldCat. There are different levels of participation so some
U. S. libraries which do participate will not show up in some searches but will
in a subscriber version of WorldCat. Ask your local reference librarian about
this subscriber version.
Locations listed can be around the world but only >from particpants so persons
outside the United States should search for the equivalent search engine for
their own country. For example, see for German-speaking countries and many
others:http://www.ubka.uni-karlsruhe.de/kvk/kvk/kvk_en.html
For Poland and some other libraries, around the world, specializing in Polish
holdings, see http://karo.umk.pl/K_2.00/karo.php?al=x&lang=en&uid=
There are many other websites of this nature, including those that offer access
to all of the national libraries in Europe or even around the world.
See http://libraries.theeuropeanlibrary.org/libraries_en.xml and
http://www.publiclibraries.com/world.htm (Not every country in the world is
listed, but many are.)
I hope that this information helps many people searching for "North Americans"
who sailed to Rio de Janeiro during this period.
Sincerely,
Edward Luft

Does anyone on this list happen to know if there is anyway to find passenger lists
of immigrants who entered Brazil >from 1880 to about 1900?

Help with a Hebrew gravestone #general

Lisa Grayson <lisa@...>
 

I'm uncertain about a word in the second line of my g-g-grandmother's gravestone
spelled, right to left, He-Yodh-He-Resh or Daleth-He. I don't know if it's an
adjective or the first word in her name. Her name in the US was Mathilda Toba
Barmon ROSEN; she died on April 28, 1915. (I photographed the stone at Detroit's
Beth Olem Cemetery on August 29.)

The image is on ViewMate:

MARGOLIN and KATZENELSONS from Bobruisk, Belarus #general

West24th@...
 

Dear Genners:
Would anybody have these two Family names >from Bobruisk in their family
Trees? I just found out that two sons of Dov Behr MARGOLIN (also spelled)
MARGOLIS who was born about 1847 Dohey, near Bobruisk and married to a
Chashe KATZNELSON were both married to 2 KATZNELSON daughters of Nachum
Isaac KATZENELSON. Their is a possibilty that they would all be cousins as
we think that The girls father Nachum and the boys Mother were brother and
sister. I'm wondering if anybody is familiar with these families and given
names mentioned, who might verify this or have any additional information?
The children later settled in Canada if this helps any. Please write me back
directly if you have any feedback on this. Thanks in advance.

Tracing in the USA #general

A S Goldberg
 

In 1992 a Ljuba PORTNOVA submitted Testimony to Yad Vashem on her brother
(Yitzchak BRAUDE) who perished during the Holocaust. Her address on the
testimony is # Westfield Avenue #, Elizabeth, NJ 07208. I cannot find a
current listing for her in Elizabeth. Perhaps she has since died or moved.
I would appreciate any advice and/or assistance to trace her current
whereabouts or those of her children.

Please respond to me direct to alancomm@...

Subject: Straszu
From: Ann Linder <annlinder2009@...>

Kitty was deported >from France to Auschwitz. On the deportation
record it records her birth as May 14, 1906 & her birthplace in French
as Strazu but likely was misspelled.

My mother recalls that there was a town nearby Sosnowiec with a
similar name that had a military base.
On Jewishgen I found a couple of possibilities, one being close to
Yiddish pronunciation:
Strzow, Poland, 49 52' N 21 48' E; 271 km SSE of Warszawa
Brucha, Kitty's mother, was originally >from Stopnice and when Brucha
married perhaps she married a man >from Strazu. Stopnice is 50 26' N
20 57' E; 202 km S of Warszawa

I would love to find birth indexes for the time period c.1900-1921 if
they exist for Kitty and her siblings.
Any thoughts on Strazu? and the military base location?
