Many thanks for suggestions about illegible Passenger Index card #general

The Holeywell's <holeywel@...>
 

Many thanks to all who responded to my query regarding the illegible
Passenger Index card for my grandmother SOPHIE GRUNBERG.
Almost everyone recommended visiting the Cimorelli site at
http://www.cimorelli.com/vbclient/shipmenu.htm
This is a wonderful site enabling the user to input queries about ship
arrivals based upon various parameters: date of arrival, name of ship,
port of embarkcation, port of arrival, etc.
Using it, I was able to bring up a list of ships with "and" in their
names, and I was able to futher refine the search. As of now, the most
likely candidates was the "Noordland," or the "Vaderland," both ships
of the Red Star Line, which was owned by the financier JP Morgan and his
International Marine Mercantile.

The other excellent suggestion I received was to request NARA to do a
search - my last resort if all else fails.

Thank you again to all who responded.

"Howard Coupland" <bashko@email.msn.com> asked:
At the end of Hebrew names on my Grandparents Jahrzeit Chart there are
two letters - Ayin and Hay can someone tell me what they mean.
"Alav HaShalom" = "May peace be upon him"
or
"Aleha HaShalom" = "May peace be upon her"

Hi Daniel,

ESRA, the English-Speaking Residents Association of Israel, maintains a
web site which has devoted one page to messages >from people searching
for lost relatives or friends. While this web site is based in Israel,
it reaches a world-wide audience, and we have had successes in getting
lost relatives and friends back together again.

Your can visit the ESRA page for finding lost friends and relatives at:
http://www.esra.org.il/friends.htm, and if you wish to submit a
message for posting there, send me your 50-word messages -- I am the
webmaster and will post it for you.

Regards,

Re: Passenger lists #unitedkingdom

D.J. Einbinder <donjein@...>
 

I can't believe how many responses I received to the problem I posted
just a few days ago! I want to thank all the Genners out there for
their help and advice to a fairly new researcher. Your Generosity in
giving of your time and knowledge is remarkable and greatly appreciated.
This time I went back to the FHC and ordered the films necessary to find
what I need.

Maybe someone can help with this one:
On my grandfather's naturalization papers he lists the five children
born in Russia before he arrived in 1903, and the sixth born in
Brooklyn, NY in 1905. However, when I looked in the Brooklyn city
directory for 1905 there was no listing for the family. I know that the
birth dates he gave for the children are questionable. For instance, my
father's birthdate was off by 10 days. Is it possible that my aunt's
birth year and place were incorrect as well? I guess I know the answer
to that one - sure, it's possible.

What now?

Re: NYC Marriage Certificate #general

Instead of guessing, go directly to the links I have listed. The Vital Records
link gives complete information on all vital records for NY.

Vital Records Information - NY
http://www.inlink.com/~nomi/vitalrec/ny.html

This link allows you to print the application:
Application for Marriage Records
http://www.ci.nyc.ny.us/html/doris/html/marriage.html

I had absolutely no problem by mailing a personal check with the online
application that can be printed at home on your computer printer. I received
the marriage records within one month.

Hope this helps anyone trying to find marriage records for NYC. The Vital
Records link also has information for marriage, death and divorce records.

Re: Shulie #general

Simon Barak
 

Shulie as a diminutive to Shulamit is common in hebrew and modern Israel.
A generation ago it used to be Shula. Taking into consideration the time
and language (Yidisch) I doubt that the mentioned Shulie was a Shulamit.

Jewish Chronicle B/M/D announcements #general

Am I correct in recalling that someone was kind enough to inform Digest
readers a while back that somebody "out there" was in the process of
computerizing the London Jewish Chronicle B/M/D announcements -- beginning
from whatever year they started making those announcements back in the mid
19th century?

If that is correct, could somebody please remind me exactly who is doing
this? Thank you.
