Your grand father is listed in the record of the St. Albans Immigration
District because he entered the US >from Canada. The St. Albans District
was responsible for crossings >from Canada along the entire US-Canadian
border. The people did not go through St. Albans, that was merely the
location of District HQ for a time.

My grandfather left Liverpool for New York City in 1902. His boat sunk
at sea, and was rescued by a ship that continued on to Canada instead.
I was unsuccessful searching the New York passenger lists for him, even
though we knew when he arrived. It was not until I received his
naturalization papers, that I learned he was officially entered in the
St. Albans records, presumably because that was the first port city he
encountered on the train ride >from Canada to New York. I don't know how
many such occurrences there were, but there is at least one shipload of
passengers that was bound for New York in 1902 that is recorded in the
St. Albans manifest.

Re: Pregant women travelling #general

Stephane Toublanc <toublanc@...>
 

Very interesting question.
Yes, women in very late pregnancy encountered problems. And not only
pregnant women but also families with children under 18 months. Pregnant
women and babies under 18 months were not allowed to board. This was often
unknown before their arrival in the harbour (about the reactions in Ellis
Island, I know nothing and want to learn) so you can imagine the
consequences,terrible. Usually people had few monney, no use of the
language, a ticket which could be lost if it was not used on the right
date of departure, etc...
Imagine in which conditions they had to wait until the children were 18
months old.

Look at the photos of emigrants arriving in Ellis Island, there is never a
baby in arms or in a basquet! We know this, deduction of several facts.
Since over 10 years I am researching a text accorded with this, *the very
rules of boarding*. Up to now, no answer out of a big silence. It seames
that many children have been left in orphenages. Less spoke about. During
the last 15 years in our genealogical society, CGJ - Cercle de Genealogie
Juive, Paris France, we have met several times persons whom parents have
been left in orphenages for these reasons: their parents originated >from
Eastern Europe had planed to emigrate to America and because it was
impossible for them to wait they had left the baby in an orphenage.

I remember espacially a friend who untertook deep researches for his
mother,it took him 25 years. At least he could trace were his grand
parents had gone: they tried to board first in Le Havre, then they came in
Paris were the baby (mother of my friend) was born, then the gd-parents
went to London with the baby-born where it was also impossible to board.
They returned back to Paris, remained a while before after few months
leave the child in an orphenage. This took place arround 1910.

Would a woman in very late pregnancy encountered any bureaucratic
problems or delays at either end of a Hamburg-Ellis Island voyage in the
1890's?

Jews in Gainesville, Florida, c1910s-1940s? #general

Rebecca Fenning <macguffin317@...>
 

Hi all,

According to my great-aunt, two of her mother's sisters -- Ida and Rose
HURDUS (b c1887 and 1889, respectively) -- lived in Gainesville, Florida.
She didn't remember any names, but just recalled that one of them was
married to the mayor of Gainesville.

This is a lead on an end I thought was mostly dead, though not the easiest
lead to research. Though neither my aunt nor I really trusted that one of
the sisters had been married to the mayor, I checked and the internet
produced a list of Gainesville mayors/city commissioners. But when I
checked the 1920 census, none of the men listed during the appropriate
time period was my man.

I am not totally sure where to go next, and was wondering if someone could
head me in the right direction with regards to the Jews of Gainesville.

Thanks,
Rebecca Fenning
