Searching the New York Passenger Lists in One Step CORRECTION #germany

Ellen Barnett Cleary
 

I had an incorrect link in my message posted yesterday, so wanted to post
this correction.

I knew the name of the ship my ancestor immigrated on and the time
period he arrived in the US. I wanted to figure out how to find that
passenger list.

I learned that you can go to stevenmorse.org and search for the name of
a ship.

Someone did this leg of the work for me and told me the vessel "St Laurent"
sailed into New York, but had I not known this, I could have just
searched the listed ports that included the year 1867. It turns out
only New York lists this ship.

I learned that ships arriving in 1867 landed in Castle Garden.
So I searched:

All NY Ship Lists (1820-1957) - familysearch: Searching for Ships in all
New York Microfilms in One Step:

There I searched the name of the ship, St. Laurent, in 1867

It gave me 6 dates for the St Laurent in 1867. One is in June, another
in August.

I went to familysearch.org and clicked on search records.
At the bottom of that page there is a box where you can find
a collection. I entered "passenger list" in the box and it gave me
a list to choose from. I chose:

New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1891

At the bottom of that page is the option:
"Browse through 428,944 images"

http://tinyurl.com/nhy6kom

<https://familysearch.org/search/image/index#uri=https://familysearch.org/recapi/sord/collection/1849782/waypoints>

That brings you to a page that lists the NARA roll numbers and what
dates they cover.

The info I got >from stevenmorse.com gave me the NARA roll numbers and
pages that contain the St Laurent passenger lists, so all I had to do
from there is click on each applicable roll number and browse to that
page. The page numbers in the film itself vary a little bit >from the
page numbers you get in your search, but they get you in the right
neighborhood and it is easy to find the list >from there.

Bernard,

A quick visit to the HebrewBooks.org website and the ability to write
the name of the Zichron Yechiel book in Hebrew, you will find this
book, http://hebrewbooks.org/42499.

If you can read Hebrew, at the beginning is a little blurb that tells you
that he was the rabbi in a town (that was hard to locate in Latin
letters, and now known as) Tyrawa-Woloska (see
http://www.geshergalicia.org/towns/tyrawa-woloska/) in Poland. He
also served as a rabbi in what is now Nowy Sacz, and in his old age he
was well received in Sanok, where he died and was buried. I hope this
helps you in your quest for more information.

I am also copying the Gesher Galicia SIG on this, since this might
yield more information for you.

Kristallnacht November 7 -10, 1938 #general

Stephen Denker
 

Although many historians have focused on the events that occurred on the night
of November 9, 1938, the Kristallnacht pogroms were not one twenty-four-hour
event nor confined to cities. Kristallnacht began in the smaller villages of
Hessen, earlier than in other places and extended over four days!

Throughout Germany violence erupted not in dozens, but in hundreds of
communities, the vast majority of them small villages where only a handful of
Jews were present. The list of places in which pogroms occurred includes many
unknown even to experienced scholars of German history. In all these small
villages, Germans were prepared to inflict violence upon their Jewish neighbors.
The number of rural Jewish families had dwindled since the Nazis had come to
power. Unfortunately for the few who remained, they were easy targets on
Kristallnacht, as were their small Synagogues.

One of these rural villages was Nentershausen, home to my son-in-law's father
Brookline resident Bert Katz who was 8 years old at the time.

I have written a book for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Shop in
Washington DC - The Nentershausen Synagogue - giving the details and the whole
story of the desecrated Torah Ark lintel on permanent display here. My book
tells of the Nentershausen Synagogue - its history, desecration, abuse, rescue,
and meticulously caring reconstruction.

It is the story of a Jewish community that once grew and thrived but no longer
exists. This book is about their cherished Synagogue before and after the years
of Nazi tyranny - told here in the stories of two surviving families - the
Katzes and the Oppenheims.

Kristallnacht took its toll on the building. Severely damaged, the Synagogue
building survived the Third Reich.

July 16, 1996, it was restored 100 miles away >from Nentershausen at the
Hessenpark Open Air Museum in Neu-Anspach, Germany.

January 26, 1935 Erich Oppenheim had celebrated his Bar Mitzvah in the
Nentershausen Synagogue. The next day, his parents quietly sent Erich to the
United States. In 2015 at the age of 93, Erich Oppenheim returned to the
relocated synagogue of his youth, a minyan was arranged, he received an aliyah
and once again read the same Torah portion.

The USHMM on-line store is still being redesigned at this time. However, you can
order my book >from them by telephone 202-488-0400 or in person.

Yizkor Book Project, October 2016 #usa

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Where do I begin? So much has happened of late. Firstly, I am pleased to
inform you that over October we completed uploading translations >from no
less than five books and they are:

Two books that were prepared by William Liebner and kindly donated to the YB
Project - "Blood Stained Feathers; The Life Story of a Shoah Survivor"
(Nowy Sacz, Poland) and the Zabrze Yizkor Book (Zabrze, Poland)
"The Memorial book: the Ritavas Community; A Tribute to the Memory of our
Town" (Rietavas, Lithuania), permission for which was gratefully received
from Romi Kaplan of the Kaplan-Kushlick Foundation in Capetown.
"Our Shtetl; Vysotsk memorial book" (Vysotsk, Ukraine) which was translated
by Kevin Allen and we do thank he and Sara Allen for this important
contribution to our site.
"Our town, Neishtot" (Zemaiciu Naumiestis, Lithuania) which was translated
and gratefully donated to the YB book by Dr. Benjamin Lesin.

The YB Project now has 123 books fully online and in the coming months, I
foresee further books achieving the completely online status. Some projects,
however, are just at their outset and this past month, a new Translations
Fund was setup for the Zbarazh, Ukraine Yizkor with a view to funding the
translation of this book. We now have over 80 of the Yizkor Book Translation
Funds that have been setup to enable people to financially support the
professional translation of the community books. Please see link to this
list at the end of this report to the list of funds.

Another milestone this past month was the publishing of two more books (now
52 all in all) by the Yizkor Books in Print Project:

"Radzyn Memorial Book" (Radzyn Podlaski, Poland)
"The Unlikely Hero of Sobrance" (Sobrance, Slovakia)

Joel Alpert and team continue to work tirelessly to make these books
available for the benefit of many. Details of the books now available can be
found via the link appearing at the end of this report.

Finally, we added in a number of entries >from the Yad Vashem "Pinkasim"
series (Encyclopedias of Jewish Communities) including quite a few
translations about Latvia communities which were provided by the Latvia SIG
and we do appreciate these very welcome additions to our project. The
"Pinkas" series provides unique information on so many communities that
don't have their own Yizkor book. Although we do have a large number of
translations of community entries >from these volumes available in the YB
site, we are always on the lookout to continue this endeavor.

If you would like to know more about the "Pinkasim" series, the Yizkor Book
Project in general, or would like to become involved in our project, I would
definitely like to hear >from you.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
in the Yizkor Book Project over October.

We have added in two new books:

- Cluj-Napoca, Romania (Everlasting memorial of the martyred community
Kolozsvar-Klausenburg, which perished in the Holocaust)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Cluj-Napoca1/Cluj-Napoca1.html

- Zakarpatska (Region), Ukraine (The beauty of the mountains of yore; the
Karpatorus-Marmarosh exile)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Zakarpatska/Zakarpatska.html

We have also added in seven new entries:

- Aizpute, Latvia (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Latvia and Estonia)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/pinkas_latvia/lat_00054.html

- Jaunjelgava, Latvia (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Latvia and

Early American SIG #USA Yizkor Book Project, October 2016 #usa

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Where do I begin? So much has happened of late. Firstly, I am pleased to
inform you that over October we completed uploading translations >from no
less than five books and they are:

Two books that were prepared by William Liebner and kindly donated to the YB
Project - "Blood Stained Feathers; The Life Story of a Shoah Survivor"
(Nowy Sacz, Poland) and the Zabrze Yizkor Book (Zabrze, Poland)
"The Memorial book: the Ritavas Community; A Tribute to the Memory of our
Town" (Rietavas, Lithuania), permission for which was gratefully received
from Romi Kaplan of the Kaplan-Kushlick Foundation in Capetown.
"Our Shtetl; Vysotsk memorial book" (Vysotsk, Ukraine) which was translated
by Kevin Allen and we do thank he and Sara Allen for this important
contribution to our site.
"Our town, Neishtot" (Zemaiciu Naumiestis, Lithuania) which was translated
and gratefully donated to the YB book by Dr. Benjamin Lesin.

The YB Project now has 123 books fully online and in the coming months, I
foresee further books achieving the completely online status. Some projects,
however, are just at their outset and this past month, a new Translations
Fund was setup for the Zbarazh, Ukraine Yizkor with a view to funding the
translation of this book. We now have over 80 of the Yizkor Book Translation
Funds that have been setup to enable people to financially support the
professional translation of the community books. Please see link to this
list at the end of this report to the list of funds.

Another milestone this past month was the publishing of two more books (now
52 all in all) by the Yizkor Books in Print Project:

"Radzyn Memorial Book" (Radzyn Podlaski, Poland)
"The Unlikely Hero of Sobrance" (Sobrance, Slovakia)

Joel Alpert and team continue to work tirelessly to make these books
available for the benefit of many. Details of the books now available can be
found via the link appearing at the end of this report.

Finally, we added in a number of entries >from the Yad Vashem "Pinkasim"
series (Encyclopedias of Jewish Communities) including quite a few
translations about Latvia communities which were provided by the Latvia SIG
and we do appreciate these very welcome additions to our project. The
"Pinkas" series provides unique information on so many communities that
don't have their own Yizkor book. Although we do have a large number of
translations of community entries >from these volumes available in the YB
site, we are always on the lookout to continue this endeavor.

If you would like to know more about the "Pinkasim" series, the Yizkor Book
Project in general, or would like to become involved in our project, I would
definitely like to hear >from you.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
in the Yizkor Book Project over October.

We have added in two new books:
