I've posted a picture of two men on ViewMate. Can you help me translate
the writing which I think is their names?

The picture was probably taken around 1910 in Novograd-Volynsk Ukraine.

Re: missing manifest page #general

jeremy frankel
 

Further to Joel Weintraub's excellent comment recently (26 Feb 2019)
there is another point worth reiterating every few years, regarding
passenger manifests for ships arriving in New York between 1897 and
1903 (though I don't believe in this instance it's a possibility
because there exists a detention page).

The point is that (for this period) when a ship arrived at New York,
the manifest was literally torn in two. The section containing first
and second class passengers stayed with the ship when it docked in
New York. These passengers were checked by Customs staff as they were
not considered to be of 'immigrants' status (even if they were
immigrants). However, as we know, steerage class passengers were
barged over to Ellis Island (along with their portion of the manifest)
and inspected by immigration staff (not Customs).

The two portions were never "reunited", so that years later when the
indexing was carried out the first and second class passengers were
never indexed. Hence, if your ancestor was lucky enough to travel
first or second class, and immigrated between 1897 and 1903, this
could be the reason why you can't find them.

I know because this happened to me when my great grandmother's brother
Edward Prince, and his very recent bride of just a few days immigrated
from London to New York. (And no, I've not definitively located them
via the UK Outbound lists.)

This issue has been investigated even more thoroughly by Marian Smith,
Historian to the former Immigration and Naturalization Service.

Re: Missing manifest page #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Sherri's original question was if the books like Russians to America
might be an alternate source. I responded to her privately saying
they were an index of the lists and not a full transcription.

The cards Joel points out (and those of us that started doing this
research in the days of microfilm before the Internet remember) are a
good source as they are another index option. Those cards are how I
first discovered my great grandmother's arrival in America.

What I also suggested to Sherri was first to go page by page online
to make sure it was not out of order or some such error. We all know
the various errors in transcription that could make the indexing a
problem plus so many other issues that could make the jump >from the
detained list into the main list a real problem. I am sure I am not
alone in having encountered this problem many times but the good news
is almost always the page is there.

What I am not sure is if pages like Ancestry and FamilySearch did
their own conversion/digitization >from the original microfilm or if
they all used a common source file. That might mean checking another
online source or going to NARA's own site might be worth while. What
I suggested to be certain the page was lost was to go backwards one
step to the actual microfilm which NARA still holds (plus some
libraries such as the NYPL) to make sure the problem also was not in
the conversion >from the microfilm to the Internet. As Joel points out
NARA scrapped the actually lists after microfilming them so the
microfilms are as close as we can get to the original lists today.

The Holland America lists of course are a good alternative as they
show who got on the ship in Holland. In addition to being at the LDS
those lists are in a number of major repositories like the NY Public
and the Boston libraries. Since Sherri knows the ship and the date it
should be easy but remember the ship left Holland about 10 days before
it got to America.

Hope that adds a few more ideas for anyone else encountering a similar
challenge.

First, as far as I know, there is only one copy of the Ellis Island
manifests for this voyage, the filmed copy. ,,,

random act of genealogical kindness #general

philafrum
 

Genners,

I'm looking for someone to perform a random act of genealogical
kindness by researching records pertaining to possible relatives in
New Haven, Connecticut. I'm specifically looking for information
regarding individuals with the surname MANDELSTEIN/MENDELSTEIN or
other variants thereof. They may have arrived in the U.S. as early
as the early 1880s. I have records of them in New Haven in the 1890s.

Please let me know privately if you're able to help me out. If you
need Philadelphia research, I'd be glad to help out.

Thank you.

(Canada) 1926 Prairie Provinces Census Online at Library of Canada and FamilySearch #general

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) and FamilySearch working
collaboratively published the index to the 1926 Canadian census of
the Prairie Provinces: Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. While
Canada usually conducts a census every ten years since four years
after the Confederation in 1871, due to the rapidly expanding
population of the Prairie provinces a more frequent census was
undertaken in 1906 -- in between the Canada-wide censuses -- and every
ten years thereafter.

The 1926 Census of the Prairie Provinces were transferred >from Statistics
Canada to Library and Archives Canada on June 1, 2018. The census was on
46 microfilm reels (48,529 images) LAC digitized the images into PDF and
JPG formats FamilySearch has indexed the images so that they will be
searchable on the LAC website. While the indexes are up on FamilySearch
at https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/3005862, they are not
expected to be available on the LAC website
http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/pages/census.aspx
until the beginning of March. This site contains all the Canadian
censuses available on LAC.

To access the 1926 Prairie Census on FamilySearch you will need to have
