Calling all families with Polish surnames #general

Alice Josephs
 

Genealogist Ceil JENSEN is setting up a freely-accessibly Polish
surname changes webpage on http://mipolonia.net

A sample webpage for the surname changes is at
http://mipolonia.net/surname_finding_aid.htm

Ceil asks anybody who has families who either changed surname spelling
or made a more radical name change to submit the original name, the
permutations and/or radical change of name, ("Aliases, Adulterations
and Anglicizatons"), place of origin and date of emigration for
inclusion on the page. The email address is available on the homepage
of the website (scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on
Ceil's name). Ceil is not including email addresses in the surname
finder because of spamming concerns.

This sounds like a potentially truly excellent resource.

norfolk passenger lists? #general

Dubin, David M. MD
 

Hi everyone,

After an outpouring of helpful info to my last request, please let me try
another.
I am looking for information on Harry SANDLER who died in Norfolk, Virginia
in April 1923. His death certificate mentions his being in the US for 2
years & one month (so he arrived about March 1921). That's all I have. I do
know he joined a large contingent of his family in Norfolk and suspect
that's where he sailed.
The Ellis Island search (using H. SANDLER with soundex on Steven Morse's
site) was negative.

I'd like to know if Jews arrived elsewhere on the East Coast, if there are
lists of such arrivals & how one goes about searching.
Thanks again.
