On Ancestry, it says that my great grandmother came to NY on
6-30-1890. I have heard that these dates may be inaccurate. I believe
years ago I knew of a source (NYT perhaps) that listed the dates and
ships that arrived on that date What is the source?

Re: How long might it have taken to go from Hamburg to London by ship in 1905? #general

Susan&David
 

One or two days at most. I found a ship on the Hamburg Departures list,
leaving Hamburg for Grimsby on Feb 22, 1913. A number of its passengers
left Liverpool for Boston aboard the SS Arabic on Feb 25.

New Genealogy Society in Israel #germany

Hinda Solomon
 

Dear Researchers,
The next generation of genealogy in Israel is here!
To welcome 2012 we are happy to announce the launch of activities for the
Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA). IGRA is bringing new
technology, new energy and new excitement to genealogy in Israel. We are
dedicated to being completely open to all groups within Israel and outside
of Israel. We welcome everyone interested in genealogy. One of our driving
forces is to open up as many possible data sources as we can to the public.

We strive to use the latest technologies to reach the most people we can
with our content. Our website can be accessed at www.genealogy.org.il . The
center of the organization will be this web site, which will host videos,
webinars, articles on genealogy, research guides, our calendar of events and
more. The website is in English but "multi-lingual" with a translation
option into several additional languages.

Please visit the website and register (free) in order to receive increased
access, to stay informed on everything going on and to allow us to be in
contact with you about our activities.

There are many benefits of membership as well and we hope you will consider
joining us in this exciting endeavor.

On the behalf of IGRA,    Hinda Solomon,  Rishon LeZion, Israel
