Thanks for the arrivals #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond, search, correspond
with me. I think I relied to everyone individually as well and if I
missed you I apologize.

First off two thirds of the missing family has been found. Thanks.

A few tips, lessons learned, etc:

I used one of the paid databases to find the naturalization papers and
did not check another one. Mistake 1. Then if needed to page left and
right in the file because sure enough the certificate of arrival was
there but indexed under the old country name not the USA name. If I had
gone to the second database and paged through I would have seen the
certificate of arrival said Briche, Menache and was attached to Max Baker.

A link then took me to the passenger list and a line above was his mother
and despite some problems with the handwriting it became clear the mother
was Gittel - Gertrude in the USA. And she says she is going to family
and an address which aligns perfectly with what I was expecting.

Other people tried various searches using wild cards which are a good
lesson for everyone. The best one seems to be using a wild card search of
names beginning with M and B on the Morse Gold one step form. with the
1907 arrival date that got them right to Menache Briche as well.

Others tried using the towns off the naturalization papers and the date
and that seems to have worked too.

Of course the harder way but it would work with less information was to
page through the individual ship's manifest reading all the names or
reading the names >from the online index looking for a match.

Once Menache Briche was found I tried using that spelling and wildcards
for the arrival of the other ship cited by the brother on his papers
coming to Boston in 1906. That yields a Jacob Britzke which looks
pretty good except he is going someplace other than his brother or
cousins based on the list.

The third brother is a bigger mystery because his naturalization papers
had Boston and a ship's name but it is crossed out and they wrote in
Philadelphia and a different ship's name. The name and date, which is
also on his first papers, does not match ship arrivals in Philadelphia.
And there is no obvious Briche/Britzke or similar in Philadelphia around
those dates. There's a good possibility in Boston but it raises all
sorts of questions about why the papers say Philadelphia.

So again thanks to everyone who put in lots of efforts for me and also
hope this gives others some ideas on how to go about searching arrivals
when they have a similar situation.

A story to inspire researchers #general

Eli Rabinowitz
 

Hi All

My talk, A Tragic Romance and Its Consequences, presented at last
year's IAJGS conference in Jerusalem, has now been published in
Avotaynu Online

http://www.avotaynuonline.com/2016/08/from-one-photograph-to-journeys-of-research-and-discovery/

The story starts in Poland and my multi faceted research took me to
many countries.

I trust that it will inspire those interested in family research.

It begins:

All I ever knew was that I am named after my great-uncle Moshe. Moshe
died in a motor accident, six weeks before his planned wedding. The
date of his death is unknown, but it was sometime between the late
1920s and early 30s. That was the sum total of my knowledge of Moshe
until a photograph given to me in 2011 changed everything.
