(France) French Genealogy Blog Posts Shipping Documentation From France to North American or French Colonies #france

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The French Genealogy Blog posted a collection of surviving shipping
documentation for Le Havre registered vessels and held by the
Departmental Archives. Not all the documentation survived, therefore the
collection does not represent full listings of all shipping >from Le Havre.
Some documentation is held at other archives. These are not only passenger
lists,but fishing boats and vessels sailing to other French ports. The
title of the entire collection is Inscription Maritime which may be
researched at:
http://recherche.archivesdepartementales76.net/?id=3Drecherche_guidee_mar=
itime
[Tiny Url: <http://tinyurl.com/jnwjkqx>
(in French only).

The categories are:

- Registres matricules des gens de mer - 1751-1950 - These are highly
detailed crew lists, often with copies of birth registrations. There are
alphabetic indices at the end of each volume.

- Roles des batiments de commerce - 1751-1816 - These are the papers
required of each merchant vessel, listing stores, cargo, crew and
passengers. Included in this category are the matricules des bateaux de
plaisance - 1850-1906, the crew and passenger lists for pleasure craft.

- Matricules des batiments de commerce - 1741-1929 - Filed on the
vessel's return to port, this gives the same information as the r=F4le,
but will show any changes or alterations that may have occurred during
the voyage.

- Repertoires d'armement et de desarmement des batiments de commerce
- these are essentially finding aids, the lists that give the numbers,
dates and names of ships necessary to find them in the relevant documents
above.

Searching is free.

(US) Jews in the "Wild West" #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

AISH has published an interesting article on "Jews in the Wild West" and how
Jews helped shape the American Frontier. In 1878, a survey by the Union of
American Hebrew Congregations the article states - there were 230,257 Jews
living in the United States, there were only 21,465 in 11 western states and
territories-although there are some who believe the number is understated.
There are stories about Jews in a number of the western territories and
states that may be of interest. To read the article see:

Question about Land Travel in Europe in the 1920's #ukraine

Leslie Kelman <les.kelman43@...>
 

How much do we know about the details of how our ancestors traveled
from The Pale to their new destination. I envisage that every trip
involved 2 segments; the sea segment and the land segment, because the
vast majority of those emigrating did not live in port cities or
towns.

Over the years I have found much useful information regarding sea
passenger lists and shipping records. On the other hand I am having
difficulty trying to understand details about the land segment, apart
from the fact that train travel played an important role.
I know that my grandfather and 5 children (including my father)
travelled >from Zhitomir in late 1923. They went to Riga and there they
obtained 3 visas; firstly to travel through Germany, secondly to
travel through Holland, and thirdly to enter the UK. I have some of
the travel documents as well as my father's UK Aliens card all of
which help to firmly establish dates. They left Zhitomir at the
beginning of November, 1923; and they arrived in the UK on December
11, 1923

I have done Google, Bing and Jewish Gen searches but without much
luck. Can anyone help direct me to useful sources and resources about
the land segment of our ancestors travel. I would like to do more
research on this subject.

Thanks

Final word from the Seattle 2016 Conference #ciechanow #poland

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

If you attended the Conference, did you get to every session you wanted
to see? Did you hear buzz about sessions you wish you had been to? What
about the one that created an Aha! moment you want to recapture (like
Devin Naar's keynote or Judy Russell's banquet talk)?

You still can subscribe to the LIVE! on-demand service that will let you
watch many of the best sessions of the past week after you get home. You
can subscribe on line, for 90 days of on-demand viewing for $179.
On-demand viewing is good through 12 November 2016

To subscribe, go to the Attendee Service Center, log in, select Buy
LIVE!, Edit your account, and click Continue to the page with the LIVE!
Full Add On check box. Check it and continue to the confirmation and
payment pages. The Attendee Service Center will remain open next week,
but don't procrastinate, because we will have to close it soon.

For those who did not register for the Conference, please give us a
chance to regroup for a couple of days. Then, beginning 15 August, go
to the New Registration page at
https://s4.goeshow.com/iajgs/annual/2016/registration_form.cfm
We don't know how long we can keep that page open, so please do it
before August 19.
