Migration: South Africa and USA #germany

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

It is my impression that during the mid-19th century more German Jews went to
the USA than to South Africa. My SELIGMANN family >from Ichenhausen, and GINSBERG
family >from Beuthen are exceptions to this rule.

Are there any figures available showing the relative numbers of people who chose
these different destinations to start their new lives?

What was the greater appeal of the USA during the 1840s- 1880s as a destination
for migration?

Re: Refugee visits - Kassel #germany

Marion Hattenbach Bernstein
 

In May 2000 there was a reunion of former Jewish residents of Kassel, Hessen,
which was timed to coincide with the dedication of its newly-built synagogue.

My father, who participated, had originally written to the mayor with a
genealogical query and was put on a list of former Jewish residents. They still
send annual letters to describe events involving the Jewish community and
interfaith relations.

Finding 1900 Census District Numbers #general

Joel Weintraub <jweintraub@...>
 

Occasionally, an inquiry is posted here asking for a 1900 Census Enumeration
District number for a large city, usually New York City. Although the Morse
One Step Website and our city street names/ED databases (ITWIT files)
usually provide such information for the 1910 to 1930 census (and will
provide a utility for the 1940 census when needed), we have no plans for a
similar utility for 1900. Although it might appear that the databases are
done for 1910-1930, in fact I'm continually upgrading them (working on
Queens right now and the 1930 to 1920 ED tables), and the accuracy and
resolution is continually being increased. Eventually we hope to add more
cities to the 1910 tables...but that will have to wait another year.

There is a way, however, of finding out the 1900 information >from home.
Ancestry.com provides free (no subscription needed) the boundary streets of
EDs. There are errors on their transcription probably due to an OCR
transcription procedure. The original information is >from NARA films that
usually describe the boundary streets of EDs for large cities.

The procedure is to, first, have a good map of your target area and your
target block. There are a number of online mapping websites that will, if
you enter an address, show you what block it is on. It might be useful to
use more than one of these services, and their accuracy does vary. Second,
have a map of the city in front of you. Hopefully you find the target
street name on the current map (and the name hasn't changed) or the houses
haven't been renumbered. We are in the process of bringing together in one
place websites that show street name changes and are generating such tables
ourselves.

Now, go to the Ancestry.com site. For 1900 go to:
http://www.ancestry.com/search/io/choosest.asp?c=4
and then choose your state, county, and city of interest and
see if they have full street name boundary descriptions for the
1900 EDs. Start looking at the descriptions, marking them on
your reference map if necessary, until you find the one that
encloses your target block. The streets are shown as
the northern boundary first, then the eastern boundary,
then the southern boundary, and then the western boundary.

Good Luck, Joel Weintraub, Dana Point, CA

Need Help-New York State Census 1925 #general

idac818@...
 

Dear Genners,
Need help getting the Enumeration District for the following address.
114 Rutledge Street, Broolyn,N.Y. [1925 N.Y.S. Census]
Searching my grandmother Malka FAERBERG who I believe
resided at that address along with my father Benjamin and
mother Rebecca during the years 1924 thru 1926.
I have an idea she may have come to the U.S. between 1910 and
1918. She is my father's mother, he came in 1910 on the
SS Campanello. Checked EIDB under various spellings -
FAERBERG.FEUORBERG and FEUERBERG. no luck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Please reply privately. Thank you.

NYC to CT #general

Marlene Bishow <mlbishow@...>
 

Dear Batya et al:

Conditions in NYC, particularly on the Lower East Side, were pretty
terrible in the late 19th-early 20th centuries. In my research, I found that
both sides of my maternal family had originally settled in NYC, but then,
after 10-15 years, they moved to Connecticut. My ggparents Morris and Betsey
GOLDSTEIN moved to Newtown, CT in 1906. My other maternal ggparents, William
and Gussie HANTMAN moved to Montville, CT in 1910.

Some of the NY Jews of the period were assisted by Baron de Hirsch. Others
followed the lead but used other means of purchasing land in upstate NY, CT
and NJ. The Jewish Historical Society of Connecticut has some interesting
publications on the subject.

I have been successful in identifying the parecels of land that my great
grandparents owned. In the case of the GOLDSTEINs, I have a photo of the
house that they lived in (built circa 1790) and several articles >from the
Newtown newspaper. A local researcher even found the grave of a great uncle,
who I had never heard of; then, connected to his death were court papers
signed by my ggm in Yiddish and by my gm in English. This was very helpful
in providing me with detail regarding this side of the family, as my gm died
at a very young age (31) and I knew very little about her or her family.

Within the past two months, I also visited CT and met cousins on my HANTMAN
family. This branch, the children of the oldest son, Samuel HANTMAN, stayed
in CT and prospered, while my gf, Jacob HANTMAN, the youngest child, moved
back to NYC, charged his name to HARTMAN, he married and raised his family.

My research in CT has been very helpful in understanding my family.

Regards,
Marlene Bishow

Hi,

I alway wondered why my great grandfather, who was a shoemaker, left NYC
for Meriden, CT about 1896. I don't know what may have drawn him and
his family there, but perhaps not being able to join a shoemakers' union
in NYC instigated their leaving.
