Missing people from Ellis Island manifest #general

Rich Lowenthal <richlowenthal@...>
 

I'm trying to track down the immigration records for my great-grandfather's
family. Prior to entering this country his name was Isaac LEVITAN; he
traveled here with his children Dora, Eva, Jette, and Rebecca. I've finally
managed to find them through the Hamburg database; they traveled on the
Brasilia, leaving Hamburg 30 August 1899. The Brasilia arrived in NY on 13
September 1899; I've found the manifest pages through the Morse website,
but can't find my relatives on the list. There are only three manifest
pages available online for the Brasilia (just over 60 passengers) which
seems unusually short. Is it likely that the microfilm does not include all
the manifest pages? (The index on the microfilm says there are only three
pages, so it doesn't seem to be a matter of missing pages >from the
website.) Is it possible the Hamburg site is wrong, and that they took
another boat? Did they slip overboard and swim ashore? Does anyone have any
suggestion of what to do?

Also, does anyone know whether the LDS microfilm of the Hamburg records is
likely to have any more information than what is available through the
Hamburg website? I was hoping to find the place of birth for them, but that
information is absent >from the abstract.

Thanks for your help.

BOHR/BORE/BOER - Waldorf Astoria Hotel #general

Louis Zetler <zetler@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I am looking for the correct spelling of the surname of Mischa BOHR or BOER
or BORE who was conductor of the orchestra at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in
the 1950s. He had a son Leo who married Dorothy BUSSEL. Leo was a
photographer who died at a young age. Any information about this family
will be appreciated.

The 22nd IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy is pleased to
announce an outstanding programme for its closing Gala Banquet on Thursday
evening, August 8, in the Grand Ballroom of the Sheraton Centre Hotel.

Entertainment will be provided by performers Beyond the Pale (see

address by author, academic, historian, commentator and community leader –
Dr. Irving Abella - an outstanding Canadian and an international Jewish
Personality. Dr. Abella not only teaches history but he makes history. Dr.
Abella will be speaking on “The Tides of Jewish Immigration – Our Coat of
Many Colours”. His comments will touch on the untold history of the waves
of Jewish immigration to Canada, how it replicates the experience in other
“new world” countries and how that experience affected our ancestors and
have made us what we are today.
