Deaths at Grosse Isle (Ile) Quebec #general

benzimida2000 <benzimida2000@...>
 

Dear JGenners,

I am wondering if anyone has succeeded in obtaining death certificates for
people who died while in quarantine in Grosse Isle, Quebec.

Here is link to a website with some information but records for deaths are
only mentioned as in death registers.

http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/immigration/immigration-records/immigrants-grosse-ile-1832-1937/Pages/immigrants-grosse-ile.aspx#e
[MOD. NOTE: shortened URL - http://goo.gl/k6zUIK ]

Quoting >from above

* Burials recorded at the Grosse Ile Quarantine Station.
* Information about 4,871 people who were buried at Grosse Ile between
1832 and 1937.
* Deaths that occurred at sea.
* Information on 4,936 people who died on ships at sea, on the
St. Lawrence River or on quarantined ships at Grosse Ile, >from 1832 to
1922.
* Hospital Registers.
* Information on 12,196 people who were treated at the Grosse Ile
hospitals between 1832 and 1921.

The name I am looking for is Pesie FURMAN who died April 30, 1906 on the
SS Dominion sailing >from Liverpool with her mother Perle FURMAN and 3
siblings and a cousin. The names in the accompanying database are Pello
FORMAN etal. But this database is for those who were actually quarantined
at Grosse Isle and Pesie died so is not included.

The passenger manifest has accounted for all passengers in 1st, 2nd and 3rd
class and there are no deaths at sea.

Since the names are misspelled I searched for all the people on the SS
Dominion but Pesie does not appear.

Thank you.

Re: Ship Atlanta arriving to Argentina #general

Alberto Guido Chester
 

Let me add my two cents

I have rechecked the CEMLA website and will translate every info on
grandfather Markus, probably misunderstood because of language differences.

FELSENSZTEJN Markus
Age 20
Nationaity Polish
Profession Butcher
Arrived to Buenos Aires on 1923/06/14
Steamship Atlanta
Port of origin Trieste. (I suggest checking where was Trieste located
at this time, because if memory serves it swtiched between Italy and
Yugoslavia).

Hope this helps

Re: Hungarians in the USA post 1950s #hungary

I wanted to close the loop on the two requests for advice that I have sent =
in the past 10 days since it has been very successful and is a glowing test=
ament to our H-Sig. I was able to locate Klara/Rachel Perl and confirmed th=
at she is a family member. In fact, the closest Perl relative I have ever f=
ound.=20

Many people reached out to me with various ideas and offers to help but I w=
ould like to thank three of our H-SIG members in particular who were incred=
ible, Gabriel Bar Shaked, Andres Carcientes and Barbara Zimmer.

As far as some research tips - MACSE the Hungarian database is excellent fo=
r records prior to the 1950s and is limited beyond that. There are two data=
bases that helped me find this new relative in the first place.
The US Holocaust Museum digital archives has now fully transcribed the Nev=
eklarsfeld list of names including the ones of survivors in Budapest in 194=
6. It generally lists the person's mother's name but unfortunately you cann=
ot search using it making it a bit harder to find married women if you don'=

or a number of years one could not access this list online since the NeveKl=
arsfeld website closed and USHMM had not properly transcribed all records.=
I am not sure when this changed but it is recent.

Secondly, the JDC.org website has a good digital archive containing cards o=
f those who left Hungary in the 1950s and stopped in Austria on the way. It=
is there I found the card for Perl Klara born in Budapest in 1934 with the=
exact date.=20

from there, we were able to search in the US on Ancestry.com and came up wi=
th her married name, but only after trying various methods. Putting in Klar=
a Perl with her birth date did not work, one needed just the date and first=
name as well as specifying Hungary as place of birth.=20

This has been a very exciting week for me and I wanted to thank everyone fo=
r the help as well as provide some insight as to how I was able to further =
my research into the current era when data is less openly available.=20

Re: Immigration from Scotland #general

Phyllis Kramer
 

Alva Noonan wondered why her Kiev ggrandparents came to Ellis Island >from
Scotland.

I would suggest some explanations.

They most likely travelled to a European port by railroad. Once there the
steamship tickets were cheaper if they went first to the British Isles and
then boarded a transatlantic steamship.

Or possibly they purchased these tickets in Kiev without realizing there
were more direct opportunities.

You might want to check incoming manifests to Britain and the Jewish shelter
database to see if there is additional information on them.

Happy hunting

Seeking help pulling Lithuanian records in Russian #lithuania

David W. Perle
 

Hi, all. While I find the old 1880s records >from Poland quite easy
to figure out, I have the hardest time figuring out the Lithuanian
records. Querying on JewishGen, I found links to scanned pages on
FamilySearch for several people I'd like to pull, but I can't figure
out which pages they're on. Would you be able to (a) please show me
which pages/records they actually are so that I may save them and/or
also (b) please translate them for me? In contrast to the records
from Poland, the Lithuanian records are much briefer!
One of the records is definitely that of my great-grandfather's
birth, Nathan. Then there's a death record that I'm pretty certain is
his paternal grandmother, but then there's another one which also
could potentially be his paternal grandmother. Next, I have what I'm
pretty certain is Nathan's paternal grandfather's death record.
Lastly, possibly that man's father's death record.

I also e-mailed my second-cousin about his grandmother--one of
Nathan's daughters--whose birth record I found and I doubt that he's
had it yet, or has had a translation, so I'm sure he'd appreciate help
with that as well?

Thanks for any help!

Looking for KATZENBERG descendants #southafrica

Sandy Crystall
 

Hello-
A cousin has been scanning many family photos that her mother labeled
very well. I just was provided a copy of a photo of the 1910 wedding
of Becky and Leon KATZENBERG. I have also located their records in
JOWBR; the couple is buried in Chevra Kadisha in Johannesburg.
Rebecca died in 1951 and Leon Harris died in 1952. I know nothing
more about them, except that I believe that we are related -- likely
through my GLASS family.

If anyone knows of the family/descendants, I would be interested in
connecting with them.

Thank you very much!
