Nope - the Ellis Island officials never gave names. The way
it worked was that, on the way to the port, the administration
of the ship compiled a manifest of passengers and this was
passed along to the immigrations officials. There never was
any registration at Ellis Island - just medical checks.

There is a wonderful movie that discusses this extensively
discusses this question. It's called The Language of Names
and was made by a man called Alan Berliner. The movie is
about him seeking other people with the same name and about
the meaning of names. You can probably get it at your public

Sobedruhy Jewish History website #austria-czech

Julian H. Preisler
 

Dear List Members:

My grandfather, Karl Preisler, was born in
Teplice-Sobedruhy, CZ in 1893. I have traced his
mother's family back to the early 1700's in this
village whose inhabitants were once mostly Jewish.

Sobedruhy, known in German as Soborten, was one of the
oldest Jewish communities in Bohemia. The Jewish
community there ceased to exist in 1938 after the
border regions of Czechoslovakia were annexed by Nazi
Germany.

I have created a modest website to serve as a virtual
memorial to this Jewish community. It is an on-going
project and I hope to continue to add materials to the
site. I would love to hear >from anyone who may have
family or ancestral connections to Sobedruhy and also
the adjacent city of Teplice. The web address is:
www.sobedruhy.genealogyphotography.com

Thanks, Dobry Den & Shalom,

Lazarsfeld #austria-czech

annjen@...
 

Thankyou to those who have responded to my query. For many years I
have been trying to discover why our families hid their identities.
The possible new name on our family tree, LAZARSFELD, is a real gold mine,
particularly as Paul LAZARSFELD (b.1901, Grad Uni Vienna 1925)worked in
the same field of study that I am in, and appears in my bibliographies!
Apparently Paul's parents were arrested in Vienna in 1935, and his
mother, Sofie MUNK, a psychotherapist had previously been arrested
for her relationship with Friedrich ADLER, who shot Count Karl
STURGHK in 1916. Paul LAZARSFELD's father was Robert, a solicitor.
I find no evidence of their fate after 1935.I read that Paul's doctoral
thesis dealt with an aspect of EINSTEIN's theory, which I thought would
have been relatively (##) unknown so early in the century.
I wonder if anyone can shed further light on the connections between
some of these people and events.

Canadian bond for relatives trying to leave Rumania (via Austria to Italy and then to Canada) #general

Rebecca Gerber <beccamd@...>
 

This is a follow-up post. Apparently my great-grandfather in Winnipeg,
Canada, had a couple of relatives >from Rumania who had managed to get to
Vienna and were on their way to Italy to try and board a boat to Canada. My
great-grandfather was required to send a "bond" or "surety" that the
relatives were not going to stay in Italy. I would assume that he also had
to set up some sort of Canadian "sponsorship" so that they could come to
Canada.

All of this would have taken place around 1938.

Any ideas where to find the paperwork in Canada for the "sponsorship"?
