(US-NYC) New York Public Library Enhances Public Domain Collections For Sharing and Reuse #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The New York Public Library announced that out-of-copyright materials
in NYPL Digital Collections are now available as high-resolution
downloads -- no permission to use them is needed. More than 180,000
digitized items were released and represents a simplification and
enhancement of the digital access materials.

Both online users of the NYPL Digital Collections and more technically
proficient users can benefit. See the website for more information.
The NYPL is also accepting applications for their residency program on
Library digitization and innovation To learn more about the collection
see:
http://www.nypl.org/blog/2016/01/05/share-public-domain-collections#

See http://nypl.org/publicdomain for information about the materials
related to the public domain update and links to all of the projects
demonstrating creative reuse of public domain materials.

Many of us have roots in New York and will find the collections of
interest for historical and personal reasons, such as Berenice
Abbott's documentation of the 1930's New York. See:

For genealogists one of the collections of interest is Lewis Hine's
photographs of Ellis Island Immigrants and social conditions in the early
20th century America: See: http://tinyurl.com/jlzcnqe

BASNORATO-in search of ship manifest #general

Ann Linder
 

A friend's grandparents whom she knows nothing at all about were
Nellie and Jacob BASNORATO. I find them & their children (Louis,Lena,
Rosa,Morris, Dora Legam et al) in the 1900 census. Jacob gives his
DOB as 1835 >from Austria/Russia. I have no documentation other than
the census. A search on JGFF family finder does not yield any close
results. A search on JRI's dB yields nothing. What I would like to
find is a a ship manifest >from 1894 but have not been able to locate
it. I somehow suspect that their name may have been other than
BASNORATO. Or perhaps their surname is Sephardic. (My friend is
Ashkenazi.) Any ideas as to how I can locate their journey to USA and
utlimately to Connecticut. Thanks in advance.

Help deciphering the manifest of Moses KUSMANN #general

Jennifer Mendelsohn <jennifer@...>
 

Hi genners.

I believe the entry for Moses Kusmann on line 37 of the 1887 manifest
posted below could be my great-grandfather Morris Cushman.

http://postimg.org/image/4ut4rzhdr/

The problem is deciphering the name of the town at far right. The same
word is repeated three times below Moses' entry and appears to be
something like Schadowa or Schowoda? The only clue I have is that on
Morris' son's naturalization papers he says he was >from Odessa.

Can anyone help? The JewishGen townfinder suggests Zhadova, but that's
nowhere near Odessa. It's also possible that Moses Kusmann is not Morris
Cushman, but any insights appreciated.
Thanks.

She might have studied either med or midwifery in Schwerin an der Warthe so
maybe there would be German records.
I don't know about Prussia, but female students
were not allowed in Polish universities in the
19th century. In fact according to Eliane Gubin
and Valerie Piette in "Emma, Louise, Marie...",
the first female teaching assistant at Universite

where female students were accepted since 1880, to

Happy hunting,
