Re: Immigrant search 1900-1907 #general

Allan,

Some creative use of the Morse Pages may get you to some eligible
records.

The Morse Gold Page allows you to search by first name with dates of
birth and arrival. I posited that the American surname Morrison was
derived >from a family name beginning with M.

I searched the Ellis Island files for persons named Abram with surname
beginning with M who were male, married, designated as Jewish, came
through Ellis Island 1900-1907 and were born in in 1873, plus or minus
4 years. That search yielded 62 records, a manageable number even if
you have to search every one individually.

I then searched for Jewish, female, married persons named Sara (leaving
off the "H" to get more records) with surname beginning with M, who
arrived in 1900-1909 and were born in 1875, plus or minus 4 years.
That search yielded 34 records.

Comparing the two lists, I hit upon two entries: Abram MEYERSON (#46
on the list), >from Krislawsky, who arrived in May 1904 at the age of
28, and Sarah MEYEROSIN (#22 on that list), >from Glasgow, who arrived
in September 1904 at the age of 27. The text manifest shows her
traveling with two sons, Aron and Herman, aged 5 and 3.

Reviewing the scanned manifest for Sarah shows that she is the wrong
person -- she said she was going to Cleveland and listed her husband
Josef as the relative she was to join in the US. Abram, by contrast,
was on his way to Brooklyn.

Although this did not produce a hit, it illustrates the methodology --
combine your best guesses with a willingness to to record by record
through a small set of results.

I don't have access to Ancestry and was not able to do the search on
Boston, but Ancestry apparently requires 3 characters of a surname,
which makes things difficult, but using the Ellis Island results you
can come up with likely three-letter combinations (Mar, Mas, Mei, Mey,
Mor, Mos, etc.) that could take a while to go through but could produce
some results.

Is there any tool that would let me search just the first name for a
mother and two children coming >from Europe to New York or Boston in
the 1900-1907 time frame?

Jewish Finns who fought alongside Germans in WWII #general

Peter Lebensold <peterlebensold@...>
 

Fascinating article in Sunday's London Telegraph:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/museums/10682975/The-Jews-who-fought-for-Hitler-We-did-not-help-the-Germans.-We-had-a-common-enemy.html

TinyUrl: http://tinyurl.com/n59xvdb

The newspaper's headline has it wrong: These people weren't fighting
*for* Hitler but *against* Finland's long-time enemy Russia/Soviet Union.  
But the fact is that, seeing themselves as Finns first and Jews second,
more than 300 Finnish Jews apparently fought alongside German troops
against the Soviet Union.  In fact, according to this article, three
Jews were even awarded the Iron Cross!  Nor do they seem to have hidden
the fact of their Jewishness.

Surnames mentioned in the article are: SKURNICK, LIVSON, KLASS, the
nurses STEINBOCK and POLJAKOFF, and the four brothers BLANKETT.

[US] National Archives to Close One Regional Facility and Consolidate Two Others #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

As part of the ongoing budget reductions, Archivist of the United States,
David S. Ferriero announced the closure of the Anchorage Alaska Regional
Archive and the consolidation of the two sites near Philadelphia, PA into
one site. Both of these will occur this year. Within the next two years the
two regional centers in Fort Worth Texas will consolidate into one site.
The savings are estimated at $1.3 million.

The archival materials currently held in the Anchorage Regional Facility
will be transferred to the Seattle, Washington Regional Archive. The
National Archives in Seattle will digitize the approximately 12,000 cubic
feet of archival materials so that the records remain available to Alaskans
via the Internet. Another 7500 cubic feet of records will be moved to the
Seattle Regional National Archives facility.

Of the two Philadelphia, PA facilities, the small "storefront" archival
facility at 900 Market Street in the city center will close in FY 2014.
Those employees will move to the Townsend Road Regional Archives or
telework. The less than 5,000 cubic feet of archival records stored at
Market Street will be moved to Townsend Road, where the majority of the
archival records already are stored.

For the two Ft. Worth, TX locations, the National Archives will permanently
close the Montgomery Plaza facility in FY 2016. All employees at the
Montgomery Plaza location will move to John Burgess or telework locations.
No original records are stored at the Montgomery Plaza facility.
