Re: Steerage Fares #ukraine

Terryn
 

The NY Times has most of its archives online. Here is a link to an 1892
article talking about the price increase for steerage to $27.50 - $30 and
the reasons why:
http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?_r=1&;res=9806EFD81E31E033A2575
AC0A9629C94639ED7CF

Although prices surely went up >from there, the Ellis Island site has the
average price of a steerage ticket at around $30. Given that the larger
ships could hold up to 2,000 immigrants, that's a lot of profit for a
one-way voyage.

As to an amount of money, I've heard that you were supposed to have at least
$20, however, there were so many loopholes, that doesn't always apply. It
didn't apply to spouses, children or parents joining family already here. It
didn't apply if you already had a job (which is why almost half the male
immigrants >from my town of origination gave a guild address in NYC as a
destination, and then went promptly to Detroit to get a job). If you look
at the actual ship manifests, you can see that many immigrants came with
literally nothing, but as long as they had a place to go, and did not appear
to be a potential "burden to society", they were allowed to immigrate. Most
of the deportations were for medical reasons.

Hope this helps,

1941-1942 Lwow Jewish Registration Cards #ukraine

Hi fellow researchers,

This is an informational post to all researching Lwow/Lviv/Lemberg and the surrounding area. Searching the Family Search (LDS) Library online catalogue http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp I discovered they now list 13 films of 1941-1942 Jewish Registration Cards >from the city of Lwow/Lviv/Lemberg (currently Lviv Ukraine, formerly Lwow Poland and Lemberg Austrian Galicia). These were filmed at the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine Lviv and are >from fond 701/5. They are categorized under Ukraine, Lâ?²viv, Lâ?²viv, Lâ?²viv - Jewish records, Jewish Registration Cards 1941-1942, Jewish Congregation. Lâ?²viv. Miriam Weiner's website describes these records as "20,000 index cards [alpha by name] created by the Judenrat in July, 1941". They are not indexed, are not online and I have not seen them so I do not know how they are organized or what information they contain.

Response to Betty Ross - steerage fares; public burden #ukraine

Stephen Katz
 

I was recently at Ellis Island and the guide said that steerage was $50, second class $100 and first class $150 - but I don't know how accurate that was. For one thing, he wasn't time-specific. For another, I would have thought that it depended on the shipping line. Also, the spread of only $100 between steerage and first class fares seems questionable to me.
As for the amount of money to avoid becoming a public burden, one of the questions on the passenger manifests is whether the immigrant has at least $50 with him. However, this was probably not a hard-and-fast standard, since the notations on many manifests indicate that passengers who did not have $50 were admitted anyway. For example, my grandfather, who was 13 when he arrived, had $5 with him and was detained overnight at Ellis Is. while his relative in Boston was telegraphed to wire funds for his passage >from NY to Boston. If an immigrant didn't have at least $50, I suppose it depended on whether the immigration agent was convinced that there was someone in the US who would provide for his support.

Can someone tell me the approximate cost of steerage passage >from Europe to New York City around 1900? Also, were immigrants required to have a certain amount of money with them to avoid becoming a public burden?
