around 1904. I am searching someone who may be related or may
know of the family. He changed his surname to BERKMAN in the US.

Passenger Lists from 1939 #general

David Laskin
 

According to family letters, a relative of mine named Shalom Tvi (or
Hersch) Kaganovich (various spellings including Kahanowicz) left the
Polish port of Gydnia on July 1, 1939 and arrived in NYC on July 11,
1939. I searched Ancestry and Stephen Morse's site but could not find
any record of my relative or the name of the ship. I'd appreciate any
help. I am hoping to track down not only the ship's name but to
confirm dates and ports of departure and arrival. Thanks. David

If any of your relatives immigrated to Brazil (or even visited there)... #galicia

Renee Steinig
 

The FamilySearch website now has over 400,000 searchable images of
Brazil Immigration Cards, 1900-1965.

These cards were issued by Brazilian consulates in countries of
origin, granting permission for travelers (visitors as well as
immigrants) to enter Brazil.

Each card includes a photo and this information: name, date and place
of birth, nationality, place of residence, marital status, parents'
names, occupation, names of children under 18 traveling with the
immigrant, passport number and county, and location of the consulate
where the card were issued.

A longer description of the cards is at

<https://www.familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Brazil_Immigration_Records_(FamilySearch_Historical_Records)>

and they can be searched at

<https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/show#uri=http://www.familysearch.org/searchapi/search/collection/1932363>
(or tinyurl.com/Brazil-immcards ).

The cards are printed in Portuguese but not difficult to decipher. On
the cards I looked at, relatives' birth places are listed only as
"Polonia" (Poland) and "Alemanha" (Germany) but many cards do have
towns of birth.

Saul Issroff
 

Martin Sugarman, Hon. archivist of AJEX has passed the following on.
Anyone with information or additional details of SA people in Spaniish
Civil War please contact Justin directly and copy me.

Saul Issroff

<<Dear Mr Sugarman,

My name is Justin Byrne, I am a British historian living in Spain,
with an interest in the International Brigades, particularly >from the
US. I have consulted your article on the Jewish brigaders many time
over the years, so many thanks for making it so easily available.

I am just beginning a project on South Africans in the SCW. So far I
have identified about 20 people with South African connections (many
appear to be have been British who passed through or were born there)
who were involved in the war in some capactiy or another, as medics,
journalists, pilots, as well as in the International Brigade. About
half of them were Jewish - there was mass inmigration >from Lithuania
and the now Baltic States at the end of the 19th-20the century.

I am writing to see if you could give me any more information about
any of the names which figure in your list, even if just the sources:
They are:

Leon Boyarski
Samuel Epstein 1298 (MML)
Vera Elkan (I have found a lot on her, very interesting)
Jacob (Jack Flior) a pilot- I have found a little about him, mainly in
an interview in a book on Jeiwsh antiapartheid activists
Wilhelm Herriberg (in Austrian list - South African/ British labourer
aged 5, wia, maybe the same person as)
Willy Heriberg (POW)
Jacobs- pilot
Jacob Nuss Mendelson, pilot
Paul Schuster Thaelman Batallion

I have also found listed as South Africans
Maurice Goldberg >from S. Rhodesia, held prisoner.

I would be very grateful for any information or suggestions you can give me
