The ship arrived in New York on October 18, 1891 -- but the passenger list appears

that accounts for the difference in dates? Ships said they were going to New York
but that more meant New York harbor versus the confines of the City as we know it.
Each shipping line rented its own docks and some were in Manhattan on the Hudson
River, some were in Brooklyn and some in Hoboken. I am generalizing and not
checking your specific arrival but the line was HAPAG or Hamburg America and they
used piers in Hoboken. A ship would have first anchored at Quarantine in the
lower harbor and once it was cleared it would proceed into the harbor. Depending
on the years the immigrants were either off loaded in the Lower Harbor and moved
to Ellis Island or the Barge Office or stayed on the ship till it docked and the
immigrants in steerage were then put on a ferry back down the harbor to the
immigration station. I have been told that this only happened for steerage and
the other classes were processed on the ship and not subjected to Ellis Island.

<<2. "Cabin-class" was on the Hamburg boarding manifest, but the specs
for the Normannia list 3 classes. Would cabin class have been 1st or 2nd class?>>

The ship was built to hold three classes of passengers: First, Second and Third.
The passenger list for the NY arrival distinguishes between Cabin and Steerage.
Steerage would have been in dormitories whereas the high grades had more private
accommodations. So yes it was an achievement for the family to come in a cabin and
not the dormitories. Also I believe the Cabin passengers were processed on the
ship and not sent to the barge office or Ellis Island. In the 20th century First,
Cabin and Tourist became the vernacular for the shipboard classes but in the 1890s
those same distinctions did not exist.

<<3. .... My question is, would there be a manifest in New York extant?>>

Yes there is a New York list. Brose the files as opposed to doing a name search
and go to NY Passenger Lists on Ancestry. On the right of the search page there
is a way to specify date (October 19, 1891 for this) and then you see the name of
the ships and click it and it will take you to the first page of that list. In
this case the cabin names are the last few pages of the list and you can sit there
and read them all to see if your family is there. The total list is about 22 pages
and only 5 or so are Cabin -- but read them all to see if the family was truly
cabin passengers.

Hope this information is helpful

Beth Israel Synagogue, Lachine Quebec #general

Jo Ann Goldwater
 

Hello Genners

My grandfather, Abba (Adolph) Goldwater was one of the founders of the Beth Israel
Synagogue on 9th Ave. in Lachine Quebec in 1910. I am looking for anyone who may
have any information or any old photos of this shul. The other day I went out to
see it, and it is now being used as a day care. I was able to go inside, and there
are no traces that it once had been a synagogue. Outside you can still see the
Magen David. I took a photo of a Hebrew inscription that appears outside near the
roof of the building, and it is on Viewmate if anyone can translate it for me.

ViewMate 42960
(MODERATOR: http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/responselist.asp?key=42960 )

I have already had two answers, and the plaque has the date 5686, which would be
1925, or 26, depending on what month it was. This probably would have been the date
that the shul closed. Has anyone ever heard of this being done in another
synagogue? It also gives the names Ben Tzion HaCohen Zacks and Sarah Rashe Zacks.
Does anyone know these people?

I would appreciate any information, or photos of Beth Israel. Many thanks to
everyone who has helped me in the past, and who may help me with this question.

Blizshen Concentration Camp #general

Bob Fitterman
 

In the Pinkas Keholit Kosow Poleski it cites the concentration camp
Blizshen (bet, lamed, yod, zayin, shin, ayin, nun) as the place of
death for several people. It also appears in this translation of the
same necrology. http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Kossovo/kos040.html

I'm trying to determine exactly which camp this is a reference to, as taking the
Hebrew name in its English phonetic form isn't working for me. Does someone know
which camp this was? If I have the name right, can you help me place where it
was located.

question re ships #general

Jules Levin
 

Thanks to JewishGen and its wonderful members, I have learned that my
greatgrandfather's family left Hamburg on Oct 9, 1891, traveling on the
Normannia cabin class, bound for New York.
1. At that time, when would they have arrived in New York, and at where?

2. "Cabin-class" was on the Hamburg boarding manifest, but the specs
for the Normannia list 3 classes. Would cabin class have been 1st or
2nd class? The oldest child was 19, and my last surviving uncle of the
next generation told me that that uncle used to brag "we came first
class!". But when I am upgraded to business class I think I am in
first, so who knows?

3. The family traveled by ship to Hamburg >from Kronshtadt, and the
existing Hamburg manifest seems to be garbled when transposed >from
Cyrillic (?) into German. Thus the ggf, M. Feivesovitz, appears as
Feibel Horwiz, this error kept as Horwiz in remaining 6 family members.
But there can be no doubt this is the right family, all 7 first names,
ages, etc. are correct. My question is, would there be a manifest in
New York extant? The surname Horwitz is unknown in the family, and the
first mention of the family is a business listing for M. Faivasovitz in
Chicago in 1893.

Thanks for any further information.

ViewMate - interpretation of photograph and type of yarmulke #general

Barrie Karp
 

Dear Researchers,

I've posted an old ancestral photograph of an unidentified relative probably >from
Romania, Hungary, Austria or Poland, probably taken late 19th c., about which
photograph I have the following questions. It is on ViewMate at the following
address ... http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM42935

This may be a photo of one of my great grandfathers -- Yitzak Wien.

Question: significance of the head wear -- is there any different meaning >from a
skullcap type yarmulke? I seek interpretations, clues,hints, any cultural
information, such as locality (town or country), affiliations, customs, etc.

Question: Can you tell where and when this photo may have been taken? In the US?
In Europe? what town and/or country? there are no markings on the photo, no clues,
but it was kept with photos including one of woman who may be, and probably is,
my great grandmother (wife of the man in the photograph), Leie/Lea/Lena Berkowitz
Wien, born ab. 1860 in "AustroPoll" and emigrated to US >from Iasi, Romania in 1902;
and died January 1923 in NYC (Bronx), buried in Maspeth, LI by son-in-law and
one of her daughters. The man in this photograph, if he is my great grandfather
Isaac Wien, is said to have not reached the US. There is an unproven story
in the family that he traveled to NYC ahead of his wife with a sick child and was
turned away at Ellis Island because of the sick child. Their last child was born in
Iasi in 1901, and Lea Wien came to US as widow, November 23, 1902, several months
after three of their children arrived in NY/US in June/July 1902. Two of their
other children arrived in NY >from Iasi: one of them in 1901(Annie); and one of
them in 1900 (Regina, my grandmother). They all departed >from Rotterdam, as did
all my other ancestors who came to US/NY >from Iasi, Romania.

Question: Can you identify the man in this photograph?

Dear Fellow Lida District Researchers:

The 1850 Revision List for the town of Belitsa has just been
translated and uploaded to the LitvakSIG Lida District Research
Group site. There are 556 individuals included in this file.

The surnames for the Belitsa 1850 Revision List have been added
to the document SURNAMES >from THE 1850 LIDA DISTRICT
REVISION LIST, which is at the bottom of the the home page
of our site (https://lidadistrict.shutterfly.com) , under Surname
Lists.

With the translation of the Belitsa portion, we have now completed
translating the entire 1850 Revision List for the 12 official Lida
District towns of registration -- Belitsa, Eisiskes, Lida town,
Novy Dwor, Orlya, Ostryna, Radun, Rozhanka, Shchuchin, Vasilishki,
Voronova and Zhaludok.

The 1850 Revision Lists for all these Lida District towns
include 7,601 individuals. We couldn't have done this without the
support of participants in the LitvakSIG Lida District Research
Group.

While the 1850 Revision List for Belitsa and other Lida District
towns will be publicly searchable in the LitvakSIG All Lithuania
Database and JewishGen Belarus Database after at least 18
months, it is currently accessible only to participants in the
LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group. A qualifying
contribution of $100 US to LitvakSIG (for the Lida District)
will guarantee you access to Excel files of all translations
of Lida District records -- new and old -- through
December 31, 2020.

To contribute, please go to
https://www.litvaksig.org/membership-and-contributions/join-and-contribute/
and scroll down to the icon labeled "Research Groups for
Districts and Gubernias." Enter your contribution and
choose Lida District.

Next translation project for our group will be the Lida District
1816 Revision List, as well as the 1818 Supplementary Revision
List, which includes Jews living in small towns in the Lida District
who were not enumerated in 1816.
