Re: Immigration from Britain by ship #general

Harvey Kaplan <harvey@...>
 

Diane etc

The search for passenger manifests in London is not too simple!

Try their website first:

http://www.pro.gov.uk/

The passenger manifests are filed year by year, then by port.
They are not indexed. There is a book of ships names etc, which
might help you. Try one of the info files on Jewishgen (think
the book is Morton-Allen?).

If you know the year, can guess the port correctly, and are
prepared to sift through the boxes of manifests, there is a
possibility of success.

good luck & best wishes

Harvey

Hello Harvey:

Where can I get an address or email address for the PRO in Kew, London?

I have an Uncle who stated on his Naturalization papers that his last
residence was London. He landed in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1901. Would I
be able to find out the name of the ship? I know he didn't walk on water
although I surely would like to think that he had that capability.

Translation Needed for Yiddish or Russian 3 Words #general

Deborah.Scheimer@...
 

Dear GENers,

There are 3 other words that are confusing me >from the diary
of our distant ancestor. This diary was probably written in
Russian around 1900 in Berdichev. There are also Yiddish words
in it. It contains many explanations of Jewish customs >from
the time that are most interesting.

The first word is "kustarnichestvu" and I'm including the
context below in case it might be helpful:

"Accustomed to kustarnichestvu, an easy home trade where they
could freely exploit somebody else's labor, mostly teenagers..."

The second confusing word is "podpevatelyami" and the context is:

"once more fuelling with hate against themselves and against
all Jews the ruling circus (authorities) with anti-Semitism,
the compulsive reactionary-podpevatelyami"

The third word is "kazuistika" and the context is:

"And a simple calculateless story/tale would tell much more to
my child's heart than kazuistika of the Eastern fanatics."

Thank you so much,

1930 Census - married but not at "home" #general

jeremy frankel
 

Dear Genners,

I have a potentially frustrating puzzle I wonder if anyone
else has come across in the 1930 census. Specifically, I am
researching Brooklyn, NY, and this may be limited to the
enumerator for the area I am researching. The enumerator was
a Harry FINKELSTEIN and the Enumeration District was #1454.

The family I am researching, Abraham and Fanny BARNETT, were
living at 3734 Laurel Avenue, Brooklyn, New York. They are
listed with their two grown-up children. The daughter, Lillian,
is listed as 27 years, married at 18 and status as married. Her
brother, Lawrence, is 24, married at 15 (a mistake, it should
be 20) and also listed as married. In the case of Lillian, she
is listed under her maiden, not married name. In both cases I
am stymied as I cannot find their families in the 1930 census!
The closest city directory was issued in 1933 and while Lawrence
is listed at a different address, I checked the 1930 census but
his family was not living there in 1930.

This is not an isolated case - at least on this page. A few
doors away at 3745, one finds the ABELSON family; Max and Ginnie,
along with their eight grown-up children. There are five daughters
and three sons. The youngest is 25 and all are married (one for
sixteen years!) save the youngest daughter who is 30 years old.
None of the children's families are listed, so one presumes that
they all lived elsewhere. Again, all four married daughters are
are listed under their maiden name!

has anyone else come across this situation?

Looking for Descendents of Wulff Joseph Wulff and Family #scandinavia

Melissa Mensah <naatakyiwa@...>
 

Hello,

My name is Melissa. My father's name was Frantz Wulff-Tagoe. He
was the descendant of a Danish Jewish Civil Servant named Wulff
Joseph Carl WULFF, who settled in the Danish Colony, the Gold
Coast, West Africa in the mid-1800's.

I was told, he made the choice to remain in Ghana after the Danish
Government refused to promote him because he was Jewish. He went on
to marry a Ghanaian woman, and is buried at the family home in Accra.

I have recenly been able to locate a living, Danish direct descendant
of WJ Wulff and we are interested in learning more about the other
Wulff family still living in Denmark. I understand some of our Danish
relatives have visited the family home in Ghana.

If you have any information you can share with us, we would be very
grateful.

Thank you
Melissa Kankam
