What papers were required to travel from Ukraine to the UK circa 1900? #ukraine

CAROLYNR
 

My grandparents, Rubin (Reuven, son of Simche) GOLDBERG b. abt 1881 and
Chane (Anna R) GOLDBERG b. abt 1879, emigrated first to the UK, London
&/or Liverpool, >from the towns of Kolki and Gorodok, Volyn, Ukraine.
Rubin came to the US via Philadelphia in 1904. Annie followed in 1907
with their son Leo (Levi) Goldberg, aboard the S.S. Zeeland out of
Antwerp to New York, through Ellis Island. Anna did not write or read English
even later in life, so I assume neither did Rubin, but he died in 1931 before I
could know him. This was circa 1900-1907; Jews living in the UK, speaking
mostly Yiddish and Anna probably staying with relatives while Rubin was
in America for 3 years before her. What possible paperwork can I look for that allowed them to travel >from
Ukraine to the UK? What documents (besides the ship's manifest), might
have had their names, background etc, either as ID, travel permission,
like a Passport or Visa? Where would the records for those applications be now -
in Ukraine or the UK?

Re: 1917 postcard from German soldier [and U-boat Deutschland] #germany

Christopher Massur <cmassur@...>
 

Dear John Paul
forget my earlier message. I had not realized that the card was >from a
soldier [not sailor] in world war I. He must have served in the
"Landsturm Infanterie, Ersatz Bataillon, 3rd Kompagnie Weilburg"
that is what the stamp says. But reading up on some web-sites it seems
that it is very difficult to find the right bataillon because during
the war they formed different new companies and so on.

Re: ViewMate - 1917 Postal Card - Feldpost #germany

Yvonne Stern <yvstern@...>
 

The answer to John Paul Loewens is that Feldpost
was (or is) the German military mail service, that provided
free postal services during wartime.

Until today military postal service is usually separated >from civilian
mail and is usually totally controlled by the military.
During World War 1 German soldiers wrote many postcards to their families as
a means of giving news. I have a collection of postcards from
my uncle, which he sent to his parents >from 1914 till 1916.
The young man was 20 years old when he was killed in action
near Reims in 1916. I point you to Dr. Google for further research.

files by our layout volunteers. If you can devote a minimum of an hour or
two a week to help with this project, please contact Joel Alpert,
Coordinator of the Yizkor Books in Print Project whose address can be found

I have tried JewishGen as well as other resources to try to learn

I received an amazing wealth of information >from so many people.
I offer a debt of gratitude especially to Renee, Paul, Debbie, James,

search through. I am very grateful for the additional search
methods and expertise that were so kindly provided. The common
consensus is that Szerov may be any of the following towns:
Dzhurov, Ukraine; Zhuriv, Ukraine; Khyriv, Ukraine; or Szarow,
Poland. I will have many hours of happy hunting ahead.
