Town identification from Hamburg Passenger List (1884) #lithuania

Spencer Brodsky
 

Greetings,

I am having trouble identifying the town >from an 1884 Hamburg Passenger
List (ViewMate information below).

I think the town may say Ceralineslow, Russia (or maybe Caralineslow,
Russia?).

Because I have almost no idea where to begin, I found a town on the
passenger list that I was able to read (Kowno, Russia), and using the
JewishGen community database saw that the modern country is Lithuania
(Kaunas, Lithuania). I realize that this does not necessarily mean that
the town I am having trouble identifying is located in Lithuania (but
figured it was a starting point).

Thanks, in advance, for any insight you may have.

Spencer

2018 brings a variety of JewishGen classes to meet the research
challenges both for newcomers and those who wish to enhance their
skills. We specialize in interactive, three to four week genealogy
courses, featuring a personal mentoring program tailored to your
research projects. Classes are offered in a private online FORUM open
24/7 to accommodate international students. Students post an ancestral
branch, set goals for their research, and work one on one with the
instructor.

Organize Your Data and Research Online focuses on your immigrant
ancestors in the United States. Six online text lessons begin with
organization and search techniques, and continue with census, vital
records and Ellis Island manifests. (Jan 5th)

The Intermediate Course, Complex Genealogical Research is for students
who, despite basic online research, have not yet found the Hebrew
names, approximate birth year or former European town for the
immigrant; it covers more complex U.S. topics such as naturalization,
death records, military and governmental records, and local archival
research (next class begins April 6th). This class is also taught in
the summer with an emphasis and field trip in New York City

Independent Study. This class offers students a chance to work on any
genealogical project within the expertise of the instructor. The
course may include United States research or the country of immigrant
origin for one branch, one surname studies, or holocaust information
searches. Your topic, your schedule, your questions. Details are on
the Education Page. (Feb 9th)

Courses will open for enrollment 3 weeks before the starting date.
Tuition varies. *Please* read the course descriptions and requirements
on www.jewishgen.org/education and/or contact the instructor.

Finally, our text and exercise based 2 week classes are offered at no
charge to Value Added members of JewishGen. Our first offering in 2018
will be Basic 2 - Search Strategies Using Google, beginning January
29th.

Re: oldest relatives: which ones to test? #dna

rayvenna@...
 

Personally, I would do an autosomal test on all 4 and a Y-DNA 67 on #1.
IMHO, mtDNA is interesting, but isn't of a lot of genealogical value.
I have personally had a great deal of success testing known relatives
from different branches and then comparing them to my FTDNA FamilyFinder
matches via DNA triangulation.

We have the following "oldest" relatives on my mom's side, all born in
the 1920s & 30s:

paternal
1 - grandfather's nephew

maternal
2 - grandmother's cousin, male (may only share GM & not GF, so maybe
only half cousin)
3 - grandmother's cousin, female (may also be only half cousin)

shared
4 - aunt

We know absolutely nothing about the maternal grandfather's side, but
most of my GEDCOM matches do seem to come >from him. And on the paternal
side we think we have a ton of relatives (people having the same name in
the same shtetls for instance), but as with the other matches, we can't
find any records to prove it.

Before these people are gone, my cousin wants to do some DNA testing (so
far I am the only one who has done any tests).

If we want to have more family tree information, who should we test, &
what test should we do?
FTDNA family finder + Y67 + mfFull for both men, or a bundle with Y-111
instead?
FTDNA family finder + mtFull for both ladies or just for #3 or just #4?
Or are those overkill for what we want?

FindMyPast Free Access to British and Irish Roots Collection #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Findmypast has created a "special" collection >from its existing records
called the British and Irish Collection. The intent is to make it easier to
search specifically for the immigrant ancestor rather than searching the
entire Findmypast database. The collection spans more than 400 years of
migration between the British Isles and North America, all in one place, and
holds 98 million records. Currently, access to the database is free-no end
date was given, but can change at any time.

When searching the data base, the results return with an icon of a "page".
This indicates it is a transcription of the actual record. When you open the
icon, there is an opportunity to view the original source document, however,
for most of the source documents, a paid subscription is necessary. An
example of a free source document would be the US Census.

I did a search of the surname "Cohen"-no first name or other information
and received a return of 38,377 results. The results were from: Ireland,
England and Scotland and ranged >from the US Census to Passenger Lists
Leaving the UK (1890-1960), US Passenger Lists, US Marriages, Canadian
Border crossings and more. The country of origin was predominately listed
as England, and Ireland, but there were some >from Canada, Scotland and
Wales. In this example I did not find birth, and death records,
naturalization applications and draft registrations, but they are also
included in the collection's records. In full disclosure I did not view all
38,000 return results. If a record, such as a US military record, says the
soldier was born in Wales or Ireland or the UK, or in a US census record
someone in the family was born in England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales then
that record should be in the collection. Anyone leaving the UK or Ireland
emigrating to Canada, the US or the Caribbean, or any British or Irish
immigrant who stopped temporarily in Canada en route to the US or Caribbean
and anyone listed on any US or Canadian record with British or Irish
origins, birthplace or parents should be in the collection.
